...and nightmares.
((If any of you are offended by Paganism or an idea similar to the Spice and Wolf series, turn away now.))

BACKSTORY:
In the country of Fides, Paganism, once the ruling belief system, has now become nothing more than a mockery, with Christianity on the rise, gaining more and more followers while crushing Pagan deities and materials. While there are few who still hold true to the old ways, they hold their tongues and bow their heads to remain undercover, away from the many eyes of the Church. Christians believe they possess the power of exorcism to remove demonic spirits from humans; Pagans disagree, knowing humans possess no such ability, regardless.
"That's blasphemy. Only the Dream-Eaters can do such a thing. And if they don't cease, we may very well be abandoned by them." ...So it's said by the remaining Pagans, anyway.
In this world, Dream-Eaters, Dream-Walkers...'Baku' (they have many names) are the 'exorcists' that dismiss evil from humans by consuming it within your subconscious. Demons can only attack humans through their dreams, and that is where the Baku come in, to weaken the demon, then to eat it, along with the poisoned dream, before the evil spirit can overpower and possess the human it came to ruin. Once a human is possessed, all that can be done is to wait for the body to die, and for the demon to leave it and jump to another dream, another body, for a Baku to do battle once again. At one time, humans did not require such assistance and were fully capable of taking on such monsters on their own, in their dreams. Lucid dreaming, it was called. However, over the years, the human soul has weakened, and their faith in the Gods and Goddesses of old has waned, along with their trust in the Baku who guard them. It has gone so far, that the Church has started burning Baku at the stake for all to see, claiming that 'they' are the 'true agents of the Devil!'. Despite all this, the Baku continue to do their work and watch over the human subconscious. After all, they existed for humans, right?


Now, the plot!
It would seem that, due to the weakening of human hearts and souls, demons are gaining the upper hand. One demon in particular, possessing eyes and skin as white as newly fallen snow, has made his rounds, possessing humans, causing them to kill each other, then leaving the body just before it dies, to jump to another, causing more mayhem. And, it would seem, this demon is strong enough to kill Baku, having slaughtered five of them within days of each other. The God of Dreams, a fairly weak deity who created and also controls the Baku, has gone into hiding due to this demon, and has assigned a few Baku to take care of it. They've been hesitant, however, considering five of their siblings lost their lives while pursuing such a beast. But orders are orders, right? Even if your life is on the line?

READ THE RULES BEFORE POSTING, GODDAMMIT:
Pardon my French, but I'm very strict with these. If you wish to participate, OBEY THEM or you will be ignored, no matter what you post. You will not be acknowledged, you will just. Be. Ignored. Understood? Good.

1. No god-moding or rule bending. If you're playing a Baku, they are NOT immortal; they just have long lifespans. They CAN die. A demon can only die if it is still inside the dream when it is eaten by the Baku. Do not bend these rules, this is just how it works.

2. Nothing over PG-13, and I really do mean that. Profanity is fine, violence is fine...that's it.

3. Romance is alright, but nothing offensive or, as stated, above the PG-13 mark.

4. PUT SOME THOUGHT INTO YOUR POSTS. I can't stress this enough... I hate one-liners, I hate super-short posts that are only two-three sentences long, and I like knowing what your characters are thinking! Don't just describe your characters' gestures and expressions, actually write what they're thinking, give others something to work with when they reply back! I like to post in paragraphs, sometimes two or three, maybe more, so I'm super strict with this rule. If you disobey this one, I will probably skip ignoring you and just ask you to leave the role-play.

5. Proper grammar. I can understand some mistakes, and I make them all the time. But, please...don't make your reply a pain to read.

6. Don't kill off other users' characters without their permission.

7. Be nice to everyone.

8. Have fun! Mind you, this is a role-play meant to take place mostly within the realm of the subconscious, or in dreams, so it can get pretty crazy/totally insane. Remember, anything can happen in a dream!

Here is my character profile, there are a few things I am unsure about namely the whole using the dream as a weapon part etc and as to how Baku`s are exactly created.

Name: Tyge Holt
Alias: Tycho (derived from his first name)
Meaning: Tyge, can be interpreted as `the mad` or `the raging`. Holt means `wood` or `grove`.
Gender: Male
Age: Unknown, looks like a 13 year old child, in truth over 100 years old.
Birth: January 5th

Personality: Snide, calm, bitter, mature.
Strong points: Level-headed, practical, studious.
Weak points: Unsymphathetic, passive, physically weak.
Class: Neutral
Interests: History, human psychology and sweets.
Abilities: Irminsul (Old Saxon for `great/mighty pillar`), creating tree`s and roots as means of protection and attacking.


Build: Thin, sickly.
Marks: Scar across his throat
Type: Humanoid Baku
Origin: Scandinavian
Height: 4,9 feet
Skin: Pale
Hair: Black, short, spiking upwards.
Eyes: White, Green irises.

Accent: Blunt, child-like, high-pitched.
Home: Fides
Family: Tuoni (Creator)
Love: None
Theme song: Sonata Arctica - The Vice
Other:

- Originally a poltergeist before being created as a Baku by Tuoni, supposedly he died at a young age as his current appearance suggests.
- Bitter over having been abandoned after learning all the necessities of his new existance, distrusts other Baku`s to a degree as a consequence.
- Occupies himself doing menial chores for shopkeepers and other people when not charged with hunting demons, mainly thanks to the innocent facade he keeps up.
- Prefers to fight alone, usually pretending to be weaker than he appears, ensnaring his opponents into a trap with his ability.

@ The Mad Bomber

Have I mentioned how much I love your UN? xD Ahh, Kimbley...
Anyway, Baku can pretty much be created by anything. In this world, all but a few were created out of thin air. However, the ones that were created that way behave as though they were robots, just doing whatever they are ordered to do, while the ones who were once objects or actual people, tend to possess more awareness. They can only be created by the Dream God, named Tuoni, and he only created them, really, to make his job easier xD
As for the dream energy thing, Baku not only eat dreams but they can also enter them and manipulate them. While a demon's presence in a dream can cause it to warp into a nightmare, a Baku can do anything and everything to the dream, and use it against the demon. I guess it's kind of like alchemy in Amestris, using the dream to attack the demon and weaken it. Hope that makes sense xD;

Ah, luverly >>; Seems my e-mail notifs aren't working *kicks Gmail*

Ah, that clears things up quite a bit, I`ll merely alter the profile about Tycho`s creation then. The part about manipulating the dreams makes sense now, but I think it makes each characters somewhat unique according to how they manipulate the dreams, taking my characters ability for example.

Aaand now the notifs are working again o__O How odd...

@ The Mad Bomber

You're welcome, then xD And yes, it does :3 Some don't particularly like weapons, so they'll just use the dream while others prefer physical attack, or physical fighting, like Yukito.

@ MaiShadowAlchemist

xD You can join if you've read the rules and abide by them, definitely.

I'll be starting shortly :3

@ Razzy, The Mad Bomber, MaiShadowAlchemist, Kari_Neko

Alright, here's the intro, then smile.gif
Oh, once again, in case they were overlooked, read the rules before replying to the intro ^^ I'm sorry if I sound rude, but I loathe when people decide to completely ignore whatever rules have been set up. Thank you.

Intro:

This wasn't the first time they had dealt with a situation such as this: A demon manages to slip through their fingers, evade the dream before it is eaten, possess whatever body they can find and wreak havoc... Yeah, it had happened a few times before. Baku weren't perfect at their jobs, after all; mistakes were made, errors, slip-ups... This was, however, the first incident which cost the lives of five of their 'siblings'. It had been a rather interesting experience, coming across the remains of a Baku. From the looks of it, a Baku's body, once devoid of a soul (did they have souls?), or any living energy, would shortly afterward disappear, fade from existence, leaving behind only the clothes on their backs and whatever else they happened to be carrying. Five such Baku had been discovered in uneaten dreams, just floating about in what was called the 'shared subconscious of man', disappearing into thin air one by one soon after their discovery. And killed in such a short time of each other...

"I don't think I've seen you this irate before, Yuki," Archie commented in a teasing tone while he and a white-haired man, presumably 'Yuki', though, if you wished to keep all ten of your fingers, you'd be best off to address him with his full moniker, 'Yukito', walked. Yukito didn't react to this, didn't even seem to notice the lightness in his brother's tone. Instead, he stared straight ahead, eyes narrowed. "He could have ulterior motives..." he finally murmured, speaking to Archie and referring to the demon. Archie, a slightly shorter man sporting spiky, blue-black hair, blinked and quirked a brow. "Could he? But what? Demons can't do much without a solid body, and when he does have one, he just goes on a killing spree." He shrugged. The two continued their walk, Yukito now unresponsive, lost in thought.

Evening had fallen just an hour ago, the beginning of their 'day', and, soon, they would cross the city limits of Fragilis. The demon they were assigned to capture had last attacked this place, and this had been where they'd located their most recent casualty, a cheery Baku who went by the name of 'Yue', who was found in a nightmare of some poor little girl. Why the child hadn't woken up after witnessing such a murder in her dreams baffled them. Perhaps the demon had some special ability? To prevent humans from waking once he invaded their dreams?

"Say...did the bastard only assign us to this case?" Yukito finally inquired in a rather spiteful tone once he and Archie left the outskirts of the city and now roamed the near-empty streets. What with the murders and such, it made sense that no one would be out and about after dark. As the two walked, Archie answered, running his fingers through his short hair. "Don't know. You know him, he doesn't really worry about us. Especially you." At this, Yukito's eyes narrowed and he snorted. He said nothing else as they walked, seeking clues of some sort in this now desolate city.

Tailor Montgomery sighed heavily as he closed shop and turned to look at his occasional helper, who just finished cleaning the floor. Tyge, who responded with a tired smirk, pleased merely at the fact that the day was over. Tyge had come to depend on the work he received from local shopkeepers such as tailor Montgomery, who were always in need of a helping hand unless they had an apprentice already. He did not fault people for their ignorance, but he could forgive them either for it. After all the reason he was a Baku lied within humanity`s own ignorance and carelessness. Not to mention in times like these Tyge felt his facade harder and harder to upkeep, a demon had killed `Yue` as it`s latest Baku victim and Tyge felt he may be next. Was he frightened? Yes, he could not lie to himself, but he knew that with a level-headed approach he could tackle any opponent. "You can go already Tyge, IŽll see to the rest of it." Montgomery said, relieving Tyge of his duties. "I don`t mind..." Tyge lied with a straight face, he did not want to seem like a lazy employee at any turn, it was all about keeping appearances.

Montgomery stared at Tyge befuddled, who answered with an equal measure of confusion in his stare back "You know Tyge.... You sometimes act like your not a kid at all." Tyge forced himself to snicker at the remark and set the broom aside before walking out of the back door. Tyge descended the stairs of the shop and reached for his pocket for his sweets. Whilst starting to consume his favourite form of nourishment, he fell in deep thoughts. The damned demon was going to rear it`s ugly head sooner or later in some dream he would have to enter in order to do his duty. That insuferable Tuoni had actually taken time out of his schedule to give Tyge a heads up because he was one of his `precious Ž Baku`s. Tyge began strolling down the street with ponderous face, but just as he came around a corner he was faced with two suspicious looking men. Not only did they seem rather eccentric, but they appeared to be in a foul mood. Tyge could recall Tuoni`s words regarding other Baku`s in the area. "Be on the look out for your bretheren, once you meet them you`ll know it`s them." Tyge adjusted his cap as tough trying to cast a shadow onto his face and avoid recognition. Yet their sudden change in attitude told Tyge, that there was no point in hiding as they certainly sensed his presence as well. There was very little to explain how he knew, he sinply knew just by being near them and a single look at them had confirmed it.

"Ah bollocks." Tyge uttered just as he chucked another sweet into his mouth. He examined the duo as they approached, not exactly what he had imagined out of his `bretheren`. To Tyge they came across more as thugs or something equivalent of that. Tyge sighed and rubbed his forehead with a bothered expression on his face. "What are you two doing here?" He demanded to know, albeit he knew perfectly well why they were there. This was about `Yue` and that demon, who was clearly a threat yet now Tyge was not certain, if that word summed it up. Tyge silently made mental notes of the two, the one wearing the trench-coat seemed a bit more intimidating than the one in the overcoat, maybe their personalities reflected that? Truth be told, this was Tyge`s first time running across other baku and he knew that he should have been happy or excited to a degree, but nothing like that came to mind. All he knew, that the arrival of these two, things with this demon were not quite as simple they seemed.

Watching the cigarette smoke swirl out of his lips and into the cold night air, Micah frowned lightly as his gaze went toward the empty street and then to his watch. "Bloody hell..." He whispered, before he turned toward the crouching figure next to him "You awake? They'll probably be here soon" He said, but then snickered softly at the sceptical look the girl gave him. She was sitting against the wall, her light blonde hair falling in her eyes and her bare arms wrapped around her knees, but instead of being cold...she was just sleepy.

Micah had never really gotten used to Alice's strange habits, and he guessed she wasnt too happy with his recklesness and smoking either, but after a few years of being paired, they were the only ones that were able to work with eachother. It seemed pretty ironic that a boy who never was able to keep still, was paired with the girl that had a knack of falling sleep when left unattended...but since the other bakus didnt really love the idea of being paired with them, it seemed obvious for them to be together. And yet despite obvious differences, they had something in common, something that made good when it came to their work...when they were inside a dream, they were pretty much unstopable...in the literal chaotic sense. It was hard for Micah to get used to Alice's sleeping and eating habits -the amount of vanilla cookies she ate was just freaky- but to see her turning from a dainty always-sleeping girl, to a violence-loving killing-machine was pretty shocking...even for him. As for Alice, she liked Micah, he was crazy and reckless, which proved quite amusing when she had nothing better to do, and he had nothing against her love for violence...for some reason the other bakus didnt really like that.

Suddenly the sound of steps made them snap out of their thoughts. "Seems they are here....so let the games begin" Micah whispered while smirking, as Alice extended her hand and he helped her up, both of them walking out of they alley and toward the three bakus on the other side of the street.
"Greetings my friends...a lovely night to go demon-hunting right?" He asked, having no problem in interrupting the on-going conversation.

ooc| I'll be replying/posting shortly, guys; got some drama to deal with first >>; My apologies. I'll edit this post with a reply once I get around to writing it, so y'all will...have to keep checking back, I guess xD Thank you.

EDIT:
Drama not completely dealt with, but it is out of my hands, for now =.=
...ANYWAY~
Here it is! ;D

BiC| Were it not for his slight claustrophobia and impulsive behavior, Yukito would have given the newcomers, whom, technically speaking, were his and Archie's 'siblings', a relatively calm greeting. Perhaps even go so far as to say that he was pleased to meet another Baku, having rarely visited with the others, save for a few, brief visits. Out of the five who had been murdered by the demon, he had only conversed in depth with a couple of them. Tuoni tended to keep them spread apart, perhaps to avoid sibling scuffles. He never knew what was going on in that man's head, which caused their creator to become a source of constant frustration for him. Anyway, had he not been a victim of such a phobia, he would not have reacted the way he had now: Startled and threatened. It was, however, Archie who kept him down.

"Don't do anything stupid," the blue-haired one muttered, keeping a hand on Yukito's shoulder. The white-haired one had stiffened, then, at his partner's words, snorted and mumbled something about 'not doing anything'. He stared down at the child, and recalled something that Tuoni had mentioned once, something about 'picking up a kid' a while back. It didn't surprise him that Tuoni had gone to the trouble of using a child, but it did bother him that it had been a human, or the remnants of a human. It was no secret in the 'Baku community' that Yukito had a problem with mankind, a chip on his shoulder. For one reason or another, he had come to despise the race for its faults and hopelessness, and often did more harm than good when handling their demons. He quirked a brow as he regarded the child's inquiry, expression stern and slightly irate. "You should already know, bozu," he answered sharply as he folded his arms. He wasn't sure what he'd been created from, but found that he had always been fond of the Japanese dialect, and often borrowed their honorifics despite their misplacement in the universal tongue, English.

If Archie were bothered by his brother's attitude, he didn't show it. As apathetic as ever, he himself was very much like many of the other Baku, in that he didn't really show an interest in anything, didn't give off any emotion save for casual teasing. He was pleased, however, that they wouldn't be alone in handling this demon; it raised their chances of survival. He released Yukito's shoulder and allowed his arms to hang at his sides, turning to address the other two. Archie didn't smile, nor did he frown; he was as expressionless as a Noh mask. He couldn't recall ever seeing them before, but it was likely that he hadn't met many of the other Baku Tuoni had created, so it didn't bother him in the least. "It'd be preferable if our lives weren't on the line, but what can you do?" he responded with a shrug. After all, demon hunting was what they had all been created for. No sense in disobeying orders, regardless of the risks.

((Edited my post with my character profile.))

That evening, Icarus was walking through the streets as he normally did- which meant he was walking around as though he expected to be attacked any second, stealing paranoid glances over his shoulder every few minutes. Aside from his being a Baku, he usually had no reason to be so nervous. But this particular evening he felt his paranoia was justified, having just heard of a demon who was killing his kind (at an alarming rate, Icarus noted).

And it was this way that Icarus, while skulking around, discovered the other Baku in the street. He had never met them before, but he just knew they were like him. Icarus considered approaching them, since he always felt some degree safer around his own kind. 'There is strength in numbers,' he always liked to believe. Although he believed this, he approached with extreme caution, and it seemed his legs moved against his own wish to stay hidden. (Icarus noted that things always turned out that way; despite his wishes to stay away from mysterious people or things, he was always strangely drawn to them.)
