[center [b At an unspecified point in the future, world sea levels have risen and the world is in a shambles. The rising sea levels have been carving up continents and causing the disappearance of many countries. Japan is now much smaller with people gathered within the small Tokyo Empire where the Holy Sol Temple and Haijma Industries have developed the Amaterasu, perpetual thermal energy plant. In the year 198 of the Solar Era in Tokyo, special fire brigades called the Fire Force fight increasing incidents of spontaneous human combustion where humans beings are turned into living infernos called "Infernals". While the Infernals are first-generation cases of spontaneous human combustion, later generations possess pyrokinesis while retaining human form. The Fire Force was formed by combining people with these powers from the Holy Sol Temple, The Tokyo Armed Forces and the Fire Defense Agency. Though the equipment is funded and made by the company known as Haijima.]]

[center [b The Fire Force is made to combat the threat of the "Generation" a total of eight companies exist in Tokyo. This is the story of the men and women in Company eight. One day these companies hope to reach the answer to what causes the infernals.]]

[center [pic https://66.media.tumblr.com/03dbdf514dfe33d829bb68be3c62bedb/tumblr_poiu9rDX4d1vz5npso2_500.gif]]

[center [b These are the roles/ranks of those in each company. Though I plan to start with six characters. I may add more later? We shall see how it goes.]]

[center [i Captain: There will only be one captain. This person will be the oldest and most experienced of the team. Leading the company into Fire Fights.]]

[center [i Lieutenant: The second in command of the team.]]

[center [i Sister/Priest: This person is important in giving the Infernal their last rites otherwise they might not be able to find peace in the afterlife. These men and women also usually spend time learning in the medical field to look after the team.]]

[center [i First Class Fire Soldier: A first-rate fire soldier with plenty of combat experience and training.]]

[center [i Second Class Fire Soldier: A second rate fire soldier who still has plenty left to learn about the job. Usually in their young years.]]

[center [i Engineer: These men and women repair and maintain equipment given to the company understanding the ins and outs of how to use said equipment as well.]]

[center [i Scientist: These men and women research the bodies of the fallen Infernals helping classify every infernal. They are not a one size fits all after all. These women and men are the hope for the greater goal of the Fire Force. To find out where the source is coming from.]]


[center [h3 Pyrokinesis]]

[center [b Important terms used for those with and without Ignition ability. Also, the differing ways in which it could be used.]]

[center [b Unpowered: Those lacking any sort of Ignition.]]

[center [i Second Generation: Those who can train to push and manipulate already existing flames. They cannot create flames without using some sort of starter. A match for example.]]

[center [b Known Second Generation Abilities]]

[center [i 1: "Living Flame" Shifting existing flames to create small seemingly sentient flames to use as familiars.]]

[center [i 2: "Flaming Bullet" Allows the user to control the gunpowder inside bullets, making the impact they make stronger or weaker, depending on the situation. The user can use this ability to make their bullets non-lethal. With "Trajectory Control", one can change the trajectory of their bullets, which allows them to shoot their targets at any given angle and from longer distances, and with "Bullet Speed Control" they can accelerate said bullets, leaving behind a trail of fire. With "Ricochet Control", one can force their bullets to rebound, bounce or skip off a surface, increasing their velocity.]]

[center [b Third Generation: Those of the newest generation, these individuals can create flames from thin air. While also being more resistant to flames than most though not completely immune to flames.]]


[center [b Known Third Generation Abilities]]

[center [i 1: Propel: Using flames under the feet and hands to zoom and fly around the battlefield.]]

[center [i 2: Plasma: A rare ability heating an area to create a plasma weapon that appears more akin to electricity. This fire is more difficult to be manipulated even by second generation users.]]

[center [i 3: Cloak: Cloaking the user in a sea of flames used to increase speed and strength however this can a very dangerous technique to use. Lesser cloaks are usually used to avoid any serious injuries.]]

[center [i I'm open to the idea of creating new ways or powers that the ignition users can use. As long you discuss it with me first.]]

[center [h3 Company Eight's Equipment]]

[center [b Members of the Special Fire wear bunker gear, which is shared by all individual brigades. Fire Soldiers from Tokyo tend to wear black helmets on their heads, with the letters "FIRE SOLDIER # TOKYO", which was later changed to "FIRE FORCE # TOKYO" . They also wear large jackets, with bright neon-blue stripes across the arms and stomach-area, and a collar directing outwards. Their jackets have buttons in shape of a cross. On several occasions, members of their respective brigades were seen wearing orange jumpsuits, when off-duty, with the same cross-shaped symbol on their backs.]]

[center [b The uniform also consists of gloves and a neck protector. The Fire Soldiers wear striped trousers, black-colored shirts, buckled at the waist with a belt, and black boots. On the left upper-arm of their jackets, a number patch with the insignia of the brigade is present. The uniforms, however, are allowed to be customized, for example exposing the feet of a third generation to use a propel ignition ability..]]

[center [b Seven-Style Fire Fighting Battle Axe is a weapon made by Haijima Industries, that is used by members of the Special Fire Brigades. When its trigger is pulled, the ax allows its user to fire sacred spikes from the firing hammer, which is located in the front of the weapon. The battleax also has a safety switch installed.]]

[center [b Core Annihilating Pile Bunker is a weapon made by Haijima Industries, that is used by members of the Fire Force. It is composed of a pneumatic or hydraulic piston, connected to a spiked shaft and recoil springs. When equipped to the user's hand, it can be used to impale an Infernal's core. This equipment is rather heavy and difficult to use without proper physical training.]]


[center [b Flame Resistant Shield: A massive shield used to protect the user and their team. Requiring top physical form however to be able to be used. The shield can withstand extreme flames and physical attacks.]]

[center [b Flame Resistant Helmet: An additionally heavy helmet used for even further protection. Though not required equipment to wear due to its weight. It's extremely flame resistant and even useful against many physical attacks.]]

[center [b Special Fire Extinguishing Bullet, which allows to subdue and slow down an Infernal's movements. However, the firearms required to use such bullets are rather heavy. The bullets aren't overly plentiful.]]

[center [b I'm open to new idea's for equipment as long as you discuss it with me first. ]]

[center [h3 Skeletons]]

[center [b I have six different sheets to be filled out. You're given free roam on your character's background and personality. These sheets are more so the six kinds of characters I'm looking for. Captain etc, and also to set limitations/rules for each character sheet. As to prevent any form of god-modding and such.]]

[center [i Pic: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/4d/61/f7/4d61f7d723ce71f0e379832e7b5bf21c.jpg]]

[center [i Height: 198.12 cm (6'6")]]


[center [i Weight: 127.06 kg ]]


[center [i Abilities: Unpowered: Incredibly fit, with tons of expertise and training in several weapons.]]


[center [i Role(s): Captain, Engineer]]


[center [i Personality: Daichi is a strong stalwart man. Always putting himself on the front line to protect his subordinates. That isn't to say he doesn't have faith in his company. He'd trust any of them with his life. He appears light hearted and reckless however beyond his smile is a seasoned Fire Force soldier. He doesn't believe in leaving behind anyone on the Fire Force. Despite being an Indomitable leader he relies plenty on his Lieutenant to keep up with paperwork and other busy work such as maintaining the equipment around. Resulting in the Lieutenant surpassing the captain in terms of engineering. That being said the captain is known for performing well under fire. ]]


[center [i Background: Daichi grew up in Tokyo and trained and studied plenty to become a Fire Soldier. He's the latest captain of the Fire Force He's been a Fire Soldier since seventeen however. He's been in service almost since the birth of the Fire Force. He's also the only soldier recruited to captain without having any Ignition abilities.]]

[center Name: Mari Hayes]

[center Pic: http://i.imgur.com/QJJvSmf.jpg]

[center Gender: Female]

[center Age: 26]

[center Height: 175.5 cm (5'9")]

[center Weight: 62.25 kg ]

[center Abilities: Second Generation User: Living Flame. Highly skilled and experienced engineer.]

[center Role(s): Lieutenant and Engineer.]

[center Personality:
Mari's an avid believer of work hard, play hard. As long as the job gets done the way it needs to and respect isn't discarded, everyone can feel free to relax, joke around, and have fun. She won't expect her team to do anything she wouldn't do herself. Striving to be an example, she's always looking to better herself, skill-sets, and ways to help the team. She can get carried away with that by tinkering with the equipment and practicing abilities, but will eventually allow herself to get to a stopping point. After a day of hard work, she loves to decompress. Same applies with her team. After a good success, she'd take them somewhere to treat them as long as she got the okay from the captain. 'Drinks on me!' . Overall, she can be real chill and wants to have fun, but the job is the job. Once she's on-duty, that takes priority, but she always looks out for her team.]

[center Background:
Born & raised in Tokyo, but mixed nationality . When Mari was little, she loved making various contraptions; whether they were toys, tools to get into things around the house , props/traps to prank someone, etc. Her older cousin was a director of one of the development departments and used to take her with as a kid. This gave her an opportunity to enhance, direct, and refine those skills under the company's guidance. She ended up doing an internship when she was 13 and working there from 15-19. At that point, she wanted to do more than just develop equipment she would never truly be able to test out and utilize, so she joined the Fire Force. Since then, she's gained a lot of combat experience and still does some contracted work here and there for extra funds and resources. Her drive has allowed her to become a lieutenant of one of the teams and a vital leader among the Fire Force's engineers.]

[center Role(s): First Class Fire Soldier]


[center Personality: When you first get to know Alfred, he seems like a bit of a muscle-headed jack ass. At least, that's what his appearance would tell you. A tempered and disciplined soldier, he has no qualms with taking the life of an Infernal. He may even relish the bloodshed. But at the end of the day, he fights to protect that which is most important to him. Just don't let his love of fire dissuade you. When not on a mission, or training, he enjoys snacking on tea and crumpets with his "familiar", Fuzzball.]


[center Background: Born and raised in Her Majesty's United Empire , Alfred joined up with the Royal Commandos as soon as he was old enough. Why? Because he wanted to fight back the terror that was plaguing the borders. Learning how to kill, when to kill, and, by extension, how to protect his Homelands, was just part of the job. Terrorists, looters, they were nothing compared to these "Infernals". Realizing he and his homeland were under equipped, and not trained on how to take these new threats down, he set his eyes on this "Fire Force" he had heard of in Japan for new equipment and training. With nobody but Fuzzball by his side, he set off to join the Fire Force, to train and fight against this new enemy. Now, as a 1st Class Fire Soldier, he wants to know what makes these Infernals appear, and what makes them tick.]

Course you can always improve as the Roleplay goes along!]]

Roleplay Responses

[font "Times New Roman" Alfred was still saluting when Daichi put him into a 'friendly headlock'. With a few moments pause, Alfred responded to the his superior. [#00bfff "Sir, to do so in front of the others may be misconstrued. Especially the new recruits."] When he was released from the headlock, he dusted himself off and adjusted his attire. Being addressed by Mari, he gave her another quick salute, before relaxing a little bit. Turning to inspect the room, he felt a bit of pressure on his re-breather. Glancing down, he saw the cute girl from before poking it. Upon closer inspection, her clothing didn't look all that practical, at least for close quarters combat. Way too many belts and buckles for an opponent to grab onto. But with such an outfit, she would be able to probably get the drop on anyone unaware they were in an active combat zone. Then he noticed the blade, a weapon that looked very much something that had come out of R&D. If she could wield that in combat, he may not have to worry all that much about her.]

[font "Times New Roman" [#ec2cba [i Yumi Adachi, huh? I'll have to keep a close eye on this one. If she has made it to the Fire Force, she must have some impressive skills or be at least second gen.]] Noticing he had been staring at Ms. Adachi, he gave her a quick nod. His attention was stolen by the Sister entering the room. Watching her stance, he could guess she had stayed up very late in that lab of hers. He avoided the place as it gave him the creeps for an unknown reason. When she impaled herself upon a scalpel, Alfred's gaze grew concerned for a moment. That was very unusual of her, to hurt herself.]

[font "Times New Roman" The person he assumed to be the last of the new bloods entered shortly thereafter. She greeted everyone rather pleasantly, but had a mysterious air about her. She, like Yumi, was dressed rather interestingly. The impression she gave was of a woman of elegance, so Alfred was slightly wary of her. Someone like that felt a tad out of place, and that made her dangerous. The Captain gave his introductions, and a brief rundown of how things were going to be. As his name was called, Alfred made sure to call some attention to himself so the new bloods would know that he was going to be directly overseeing their training. No sooner had the Captain mentioned the Sister's 1 year anniversary, the alarm began blaring. Knowing Fuzzball hated the damn thing, Alfred winced a little.]

[font "Times New Roman" The Captain gave the order to roll out, and that's all he needed to hear. Smiling a bit behind his re-breather, Alfred gestured to the two new bloods. [#00bfff "You two, on my six. Let's go."] Turning on his heel, he began making his way towards the locker room. Tightening the re-breather so it wouldn't come off, and removing his shoulder holster, he pulled off his hoodie and vest, leaving the black tank top on while he walked. Securing the shoulder holster once again, he might not be as 'ripped' as the Captain, but he was nicely toned, at least in his opinion. Pointing the two recruits towards their lockers, he turned and addressed them. [#00bfff "We move out in five minutes. Suit up, and head through those doors at the end of the hall to the garage. Helmets are in the Matchbox. Don't be late."]]

[font "Times New Roman" Heading over to his own locker, he popped it open with a practiced fluidity. Discarding his jeans, he placed the shed attire into his locker, he threw on his modified bulletproof tactical vest. The vest was modified by Mari to be able to carry his spare ammo, a couple of extinguisher grenades, and sported the Union Jack on the back like a name tag. The fire retardant overalls, boots, and Fire Force 8 jacket all came next. Leaving the best gear for last, Alfred extracted his rifle from the locker. It was another Mari special, built using the framework of an FN SCAR, it was completely modular, modified to his specifications to be able to fire extinguisher rounds. Taking a look at the stock, he bite back a few tears. The insignia of his old squad was emblazoned there, boldly and proudly displayed. The 384th British Commandos, or the "Mad Jacks". Slinging it over his shoulder, he made his way into the Matchbox.]

[font "Times New Roman" [#00bfff "Alfred Greaves, present and accounted for."] He announced his presence with a lighter tone than usual. Though not looking forward to the earful he was going to get from Fuzzball when he got back, he was looking forward to this patrol. Between the newblood, and the Infernal, it was hard not to show how excited he was. Securing his helmet, he gave Yumi an approving nod for being right behind him.]

[font "Times New Roman" Turning to the recruits as the Matchbox, Alfred couldn't hide the excitement from his voice. [#00bfff "Alright recruits, listen up. This is going to be a trial by fire. Cover each other, stick together, and don't play the hero. Follows those instructions, and we might just make Fire Soldiers out of you yet."] He rapped his knuckles on top of his helmet, keeping his eyes on the recruits. [#00bfff "Do well on this mission, and the Captain may even complement you two. God save the Queen."] With that, Alfred began loading his rifle, before tucking it away under his jacket, securing it to the straps inside.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kaushan+Script:400,700&display=swap&subset=latin-ext] Everyone started trickling in after Yumi's rotating showcase of her apparel. Although her expressions were bland, she seemed to have some character underneath it. [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Nice."]]]

The first arriving member came in right at the end of it. Alfred literally reported in as usual.When Daichi went over correct Alfred with a 'friendly headlock', Mari laughed. [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "You know you set yourself up for that."]]] Alfred spent many years in the British military. Some habits are very hard to break, but Daichi was very adamant on breaking this one. The whole ordeal was entertaining. Mari could have done without such a rigid greeting as well, but decided to let Alfred be Alfred with it a long time ago.

Alica lazily dragged herself in next. She was the walking dead, without being on fire. She not only missed the newbie in the room, but pulled a scalpel out of her pocket. Despite what Daichi thought, that scalpel was not from patching up the team's wounds. However, Mari wasn't going to go into that. [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Didn't finish your coffee in time, huh, Alica. Did you notice that Alfred was here too?"]]]

Last but not least, Darcia, their other new recruit, arrived. She also wore all dark clothes and came in smiling. [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Hey. Don't worry about it. Everyone just gathered."]]] With her arrival, Daichi now went into his introduction to the 8th company. Everything sounded good. Alfred was taking on most of their training. Mari was still a part of it, but with the freedom of taking care of the rest of her responsibilities. Apparently Alica had been with them for exactly one year. The two young girls were joining on her anniversary. Definitely a cause for celebration…. Except the alarm went off. An infernal had appeared in their district, they had to also the patrol. They were tossed straight into the fire, literally. Since he hadn't been able to try it out first, Mari put Alfred's new gear piece off to the side. Never go on the field with equipment you haven't used before. She still had her new boots on, but she tried them and many earlier versions already. Alfred had to wait until the next training sessions. The mission had begun.

With her cami still there, Mari quickly slipped out her shirt-jacket as she walked into the locker room. By the time she reached her hanger, she readily put it on the hook and swapped it out for her fireproof coat. Hers was thinner than the standard one and had multiple hidden pockets. Mari had good heat resistance, so it would have been unnecessary weight. With a lighter one, she could maneuver quicker and access some handy stuff. Like clockwork, she had her neck protector and gloves on in no time. First one done. On her way out the door, she made an announcement directed to the new recruits, [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Helmets are already in the Matchbox with names on them."]]] She nodded towards Alfred as a reminder to help them locate theirs if needed.

Alfred was more than capable to handle whatever they needed, but now there was less confusion he'd have to consider while getting himself ready. Recruits became familiar with what was required for the uniform during training, so naturally they might look for their helmets nearby. A lot of brigades stored them that way. However, Mari found keeping them in the Matchbox a lot more efficient. There was no point wasting time just to lug those things every time they were called out. The only times they were needed were when they'd have to drive in the Matchbox anyway. Outside of cleaning them, why should the helmets ever leave?

Mari's goal was always to take as minimal time to head out, even before the captain. She wanted the extra time to make sure they were ready to go. She maintained the Matchbox since the captain had been overloaded with work recently. So, she just looked for any signs of tampering, malicious or not. That was all clear, so she started up the engine. Smooth as always. After that was all their supplies and equipment. The first aid box was still replenished. The helmets haven't moved. Extra ammo in case some of their artillery ran out. Et cetera. They were set. It didn't take long for Daichi to join her and get situated in the driver's seat. She donned her helmet and settled in her spot as well.

Once everyone was set, Daichi let everyone know they were off. Once one the road, she turned towards the rest of the brigade, [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Okay, guys. We were cut short. Darcia Lovell. Yumi Adachi. Glad to have you in the 8th. I’m Lieutenant Mari Hayes. Mari works if you want. I honestly don't care what you call me as long as it doesn't break my rules. In general and especially on the field, I expect two things. Get the job done. And be respectful. That includes yourselves, not just others. Vice versa. So, don’t neglect any of it.

Like our captain, I’m not big on formalities. However, there is one that falls under both rules. Regardless of your personal opinion or interest behind it, I better see everyone saying ‘látom’ after our sister ends the prayer and we’ve put the Infernal to rest. If you have any questions about that, feel free to ask when we get back. Alfred can handle the rest from here."]]]

[font david [i Yumi had stood there blinking as the captain leaned in to inspect her. Her expression had remained completely straight a light tint of red dusted her cheeks and nose.]]

[font david [i When he was done exploring the contents of her facial expressions he gave her a pat on the back. Well, a pat may be underselling it she damn near fell over. With a small little stumble, she managed to find her footing again. She found herself lost in thought examining his face albeit not as intensely as before.]] [font david [+aqua He looks a little different from my Genta, still..]]

[font david [i She offered a meek wave as a form of salutations to the brash captain and Mari. "Nice piece of work you've got. You're dressed a bit odd though. Were you expecting some comic con?" She tilted her head at him stating a nice piece of work she had. She even looked at herself a bit confused before realizing he meant her sword. Of course, he meant that why would she think otherwise? She was a very strange girl indeed. She wasn't sure how to answer the comment about her outfit. Instead, she had given a twirl of her cape using some slight flames for dramatic flair to keep her cape going. She had pointed to her cheek in traditional "moe" fashion although it was may have appeared even more strange due to her face still being completely straight.]]

[font david [#89add2 [size10 Heh.]]]

[font david [i She was always eccentric like this it's why maintaining friends was a bit of a hurdle for her. She hadn't realized the First Class soldier had entered the room just in time to see her little show. She blinked turning back and looking at him. Perhaps she should have been embarrassed but instead, she found herself tilting her head and looking at his mask. She leaned over poking the mask with a delicate touch.]]

[font david [#89add2 [size10 Cool.]]]

[font david [i She liked weird stuff like that it fascinated her. The captain, Mari, Alfred she wasn't what she was expecting. They were all much more attractive than she was expecting. Although she really wasn't sure what to expect from them. Yumi had stood on the sidelines as the captain spoke with the others. Alicia had made her entrance into the room as Yumi watched her closely. Classic delinquent type down to her style of clothing. Yumi didn't just play Otome games she loved dating sims to and she'd be lying if she said she didn't find herself choosing the dangerous girl from time to time. Yumi found herself staring at Alicia a bit she wasn't expecting to see another beautiful woman on the team. If only for a brief moment it made her question her strange choice of attire. She had gazed at Alicia a few moments longer before waiting for the final recruit. She took notes of the conversation unfolding before her to learn what she could of her new team.]]


[font david [i After some time had passed and the team caught up a bit she noticed the other recruit make her entrance. Of course, it was another beautiful woman. She had an aura of danger at first until she actually opened her mouth and spoke. It was soft and warm a lot more welcoming than Alicia. Not that she minded Alicia's attitude but she found herself offering a wave to Darcia. It was clear they were the two youngest around and it helped Yumi wasn't the only new girl. Though she didn't outwardly appear shy it was clear she didn't go outside much and talk to actual people.]]

[font david [i The captain had begun an announcement to the entire team. She listened staring at him as the girl begun to go down a rabbit hole in her thoughts. [font david [+aqua Jesus christ does he lift the team in his spare time? Is being a dumbbell part of the job?]] a strange part of her wouldn't exactly mind the prospect but at the same time, she was wondering how the captain spent his free time. Being a captain he probably had a powerful Ignition ability to boot. Yumi's thoughts were abruptly interrupted by the loud alarm going off in the building. She was tired of alarms today but she knew what that meant. Her first day and she'd be facing a real life Infernal. She had combat training in basic against other third and second generation users but she's never fought an actual Infernal. She went to go get dressed as she very meticulously removed her current outfit without much embarrassment or restraint. Equipping her Bunker Gear next, she was a bit slow going at first. She had trained how to use and wear the outfit and it seemed her outfit was modified. A propel user needed to have legs a bit shorter as well as the arms to freely use their flames. The heat didn't affect her as much anyway. Despite her training, she was one of the last member's to get her gear on. Opting out of any additional equipment or protection. She wasn't physically conditioned to wield much except her Engine Blade. Yumi was sure all she would need would be her Ignition abilities. She followed behind Alfred like she was ordered to.]]

[center [b Daichi lost seemingly lost himself to his bench pressing. However, he felt something strange lurking in the corner of his eye. Or maybe it was simply a burning sensation that someone was watching him? Placing his equipment back where it belonged he stood up popping his shoulders loudly. He gave a hearty chuckle seeing one of the new blood had arrived alongside Mari. She was staring intensely at the man. Was she sizing him up? It wasn't strange to have third generation's challenging Daichi to a fight often. Being an unpowered captain called into his question to lead a squad often. He leaned in close to the woman peering into her eyes. Before letting out a wide smile. Whatever it was? That wasn't the case he could tell that much. He slapped her back with a hearty laugh.]]

[center [+darkred You can't stare at people like that! They might think you're trying to pick a fight ya know? Name's Daichi Takakai but don't bother with captain or Mr. Takakai. Daichi's just fine!]]

[center [b He pulled away as he crossed his arms still a soft smile on his face but his face seemed more introspective. He was peering at her outfit from bottom to top before glancing at her Engine Blade.]]

[center [+darkred Nice piece of work you've got. You're dressed a bit odd though. Were you expecting some comic con?]]

[center [b He had let out a slight chuckle before Mari had lectured him about him being engrossed into his workout. He waved his hands with a bit of a shrug.]]


[center [+darkred Yeah I guess that's my bad I just got tired of sitting around all the time. Don't worry I filled out paperwork on the recruits though.]]

[center [b He explained to Mari knowing she would break down on his case if he hadn't gotten it done. He may have been the captain but she did help keep the restless man in check. Alfred had entered shortly with a salute followed by a "sir and mam" Daichi had walked over wrapping his arm around the younger male.]]

[center [+darkred Alfred come on you know you don't gotta do that every time! I won't tell the board if you won't! Hahaha! I mean you've been working here a while!! I was just telling the new recruit to go ahead and call me Daichi!]]

[center [b The captain gave a merry smirk as he patted the young male's back before letting go. It was, of course, Alicia's turn to show up asking about the new blood. Daichi pointed at Yumi before giving the sister a wave.]]

[center [+darkred Hey Alicia! Sleep well I hope? Well this is Yumi Adachi he other new recruit will probably be here soon.]]


[center [b The captain had seen Alicia pull a scalpel out from her hand. It's not like the companies cut open live Infernal's and when they died? They turned to explosive ash. So the captain crossed his arms with a loud "Hmm"]]

[center [+darkred Knowing us I'm sure you just had to patch me up again. I tend to be in you're care a lot in the infirmary! Haha!!]]

[center [b It was true the captain may have indeed been the strongest and most capable Fire Soldier here despite being unpowered. However, he found himself with the most injuries maybe that wasn't the mark of a real "talented" captain. Though he was usually at the forefront bearing what he could for his squad. He was grateful to have Alicia to patch him up when he found himself in need of "Repair."]]

[center [b It wasn't long before Darcia had entered the room with an awful warm greeting. Daichi had offered her a firm handshake ]]

[center [+darkred Yo, the names Daichi Takakai the captain of company 8 but just call me Daichi! All right, everyone, this is Darcia Lovell! Treat the two new recruits with respect. That being said I will be expecting Alfred and Mari to whip them into shape in time. Especially you Alfred since Mari also has other duties she occupies herself with. These are the first third-generation users we've got on the team! So let's see what they can do all right? Oh yeah! I didn't introduce our sister.

[center [b Before Daichi could finish his speech a blaring alarm had begun to set off in the building. Daichi's tone had turned however his usual smile was still plastered across his face as he looked at his team.]]

[center [+darkred Grab you're Bunker gear and meet me in the garage. Recruits you're to follow Alfred I'll go get the "Matchbox" meet me at the front.]]

[center [b Daichi grabbed a massive sword the Cleaver Mark II. It may not have been as fancy as the "Engine Blade" but what it lacked in finesse it made up for in raw power. A large heavy blade that could vibrate intensely if need be. It was considered a failure because it was unwieldy and dangerous to use. It was a piece of gear that the captain stuck to managing himself. Granted him and Mari had worked together to create the Mark II. The Mark I was considered even more dangerous and created by Hajima. Many soldiers lost their lives using the Mark I so even though the equipment wasn't forcibly repossessed it was against regulation to use it for anything besides scrapping for parts. However, the captain couldn't bring himself to scrap even the Mark I. Using it as a frame of reference him and Mari managed a somewhat safer revolution. It was still a weapon only Daichi could pull off.]]


[center [b Daichi had packed a few extinguisher grenades in his Bunker Gear. Taking a Bunker Helmet with added shoulder pads. His Bunker Gear was modified to be a bit heavier but offer a little more protection. Taking the massive Fire Blast Shield and placing it on his back. He took the type two battleax. Only Alicia had the skill to bless water and help create sacred darts. That would be all the captain would take this trip but sometimes he changed it up. He may have been big and full of muscle but even he had a limit of what to bring and still can move around effectively. He was already one of the slower members on the field That being said after gearing up the captain managed to jog to the garage to get the units large armored vehicle. Or AKA the "Matchbox" driving it to the front with Mari. He looked in the back glad to see it had emergency equipment just in case. That was due to Mari's hard work and diligence. Maybe they could grab some more Ashes from a new Infernal for Alicia to study when they get back.]]

  Daichi Takakai (Casual) / ShieldHero- / 4d 2h 45m 22s
[center She had been up before her alarm went off. Nervous and unable to catch that extra hour of sleep. To keep herself busy she had showered and got dressed. The black dress she had decided on cut off a little below her knees. None of that had taken nearly enough time. She sighed and looked around her apartment. Nice and neat. The way she liked it. The whole place smelled of flowers. She smiled lightly to herself. Flower arranging was a hobby of hers and it kept her busy most of the time. The only real messy spot in her apartment was the table. Flowers laying out that she had been working with. Even this mess was organized though. The stems she had cut off in a neat pile even the flowers laid in a small pile. To her this was still a mess.]

[center She cleaned up the flowers and the stems putting everything away. She would return to this another day. She would have to get new flowers by then though. She would make a reminder before she left. By the time she had finished that it was about time to leave. She let out a soft sigh. She had to compose herself. She couldn’t act nervous. It had been her decision to come here and help. It had been against her families wishes, but she hadn’t cared. She would follow her own path. She knew in the end they would accept her choice. They always did. She looked around her apartment quietly. The smell of flowers still lingering on the air. She wished she had time to do more with them, but she didn’t. She had to go.]

[center She left the apartment feeling a little less nervous, but not completely as composed as she wanted to be. She had taken a note down on what subways she would have to take to get to the company eight building. She at least felt confident in that. She of course had left the paper with that information inside of her apartment though. She glanced up at the building deciding on if she should go back inside or not. She knew the way. She had read it several times. She didn’t have time to go back inside and look. She would just have to go from memory. She could do that.]

[center She was wrong. By the time she had gotten to the first subway she had forgotten everything she had wrote down. So she ended up taking a wrong one before she asked for help. Now as she stood in front of the building she looked down and sighed.]

[center [+deeppink “Well I suppose at least I was only lost for a little bit... It could have been worse...”]]

[center She sighed softly again and slowly collected herself before she stepped inside. This building was rather large. Where was she suppose to go again? Great. Oh right. The captains office right? Where was that? She looked around slowly before she just chose a hall and began walking down it. Thankfully the hall she walked down led her towards where everyone was gathered. She stood there a moment letting her eyes fall on the girl that was standing in the doorway. She carefully walked over to join her looking into the room. So this was where they were suppose to gather? In the gym? She shook her head dismissing those thoughts for the time being. Was she the last one to arrive? Great. She had wanted to be first. She should have left earlier. Damn. Nothing she could do about it now. She had pushed all the nervousness she felt away. She had to. As she always liked to appear confident of herself. So she greeted everyone with a warm smile.]

  .WildFire. / -Rika / 4d 4h 25m 20s
The darkness, a perfect place for a peaceful atmosphere to think or relax. Feeling as if being stuck in an endless void subtlety forced oneself into an endless, free-falling perspective.

Within the dark confines of the medical lab a shady figure could be seen sitting hunched over a table. Every so often a shadow in the shape of a weird cup could be seen moving up and down, the shadowy figure quenching her thirst from the cup. The shadowy figure was none other than the science priestess of Fire Force 8 Alica Bell, currently in the middle of a flashback after learning of new recruits coming in today.

Today marked 365 days since she had left America, 52 fast weeks, one slow year. A creeping along single year since her tenure in Tokyo, Japan. And oh my did the first part of started off crazy.

Back in America Alica was known as Dr.Bell to her patients, the other nursing staff she worked with in the hospital, and to other hospitals and their nursing staffs. Dr.Bell managed to find out this Fire Force company thing happening in Tokyo, Japan and had decided to apply for an open position. The wait for a reply, and then for a plane ticket over the sea was not long in coming.

At the Tokyo airport a priestess of the Sol religion, which Alicia thought was a bunch of hocus pocus, took her into custody so to speak. No talking happened, only a lengthy awkward car ride to a building. Dr.Bell did not get any chance to see who else was in this building for she was given only enough time to go in, chuck her stuff, claim the space for a medical lab, and walk back to car, all under the priestesses’ observation.

The next building, that would be the building were Dr. Alica Bell transformed into Sister Alica Bell. The process of this mutating transformation from a regular doctor to a priestess of the Sol religion left quite a mark on Alica, and a permanent change. Dr.Bell never knew how to speak or write Japanese, but Sister Bell fluently wrote and spoke Japanese as if she’d been a native of Japan. Dr.Bell had known nothing about the Sol religion whereas Sister Bell knew every single detail. Dr.Bell had only known how to be a doctor while Sister Bell knew not only how to be a doctor but also the giver of the last rite.

At the end of this [i sister indoctrination school], Alica jokingly called it, she exited a very changed person.

One such interesting example of change was an encounter with a street vendor as she’d been walking to the Fire Force 8 headquarters for her first day as an official priestess. The street vendor had an assortment of vegetables and fruit, and Alica asked for an apple. Her spoken words were in Japanese while her thoughts were in English, subsequently Alica thought she had spoken in English. Which meant it came as a surprise when the vendor commented on her fluency for a foreigner as he bagged the apple, to which Alica responded by paying for the apple and saying that she was speaking English. The vendor couldn’t help but feeling confused at a foreigner who spoke fluent Japanese but claiming to speak English, he attempted to point this out but the foreigner refuted him again before walking off. Alica did come back later to apologize to the vendor and now she frequently bought things from him.

Another surprise awaiting Alica came in the form of a person whom she had not met for over 10 years. She’d met Mari Hayes at the Fitz-Simmons Institute of Science and Innovation. Both of them had been interning, Alica as a med intern and Mari something to do with engineering or similar to engineering. Their first encounter came in the form of Alica walking into a lab in which Mari had been tinkering with what was considered dangerous tools, an obvious safety violation and a ginormous medical risk. Somehow, they began to chat and befriended before splitting off to each their own path. Mari Hayes reintroduced herself in the same way Alica had first introdocurd herself to Mari those many years ago.

Alica snapped out of her flashback, standing up unsteadily while groaning. The flashback had felt crushing on the mind, as if the resting effects of a good nights sleep had been pressure mushed to smithereens. [#cc00cc [b “Guess that is what coffee is for”]], another sip from the cup before walking out the lab and downstairs with a slight limp to her right leg, dressed in her ‘signature’ dark grey beanie, explicit content t-shirt, black jeans, and black/blue sneakers.

A few people had already congregated in one of the rooms downstairs, Alice instantly recognized Mari and the Captain from the almost constants interactions with them over the past months since living here. [#cc00cc [b “So... when is the new blood supposed to show up”]], her words drawn out a bit more due to still being sleepy, another audible sip of hot coffee shortly following.

Alica leavened into the wall, dropping her unoccupied left hand downwards. Mindlessly looking around, she felt a sharp tip pressing through the left jean pocket and into her hand. She carefully brought it out to reveal it to be a brand new scalpel. [#cc00cc [b “Huh, was I cutting up somebody last night?”]]
  Alica Bell / NorthernWolves / 4d 15h 40m 51s
Shielding his eyes from the sun, Alfred looked out into a forest. A forest that was very familiar to him. It was near his training camp, back in Britain. Before he could ask any questions, something zipped by his head, followed by the pop of a rifle. Drawing his sidearm in a fluid motion, he focused his sights upon a fuzzy humanoid silhouette. The figure noticed, and rushed him, lowering itself to make a smaller target. The first shot Alfred made missed the target by a hair, and before he could fire again the figure rammed it's shoulder into his gut.

With a jolt he awoke in his bunk. Reaching down to his gut, he found his companion, Fuzzball. Fuzzball looked up at him, purring and nuzzling his hand. Judging by the light coming in through the window, it was time for food. Quickly getting up, he grabbed the set of clothing he had left out the night before. Setting Fuzzball up with a little kitten chow in a bowl, and setting both of the aforementioned items upon his desk, made his way into the shower, reflecting upon his dream. [i [#ec2cba It's been a good few years since I've been back to the place... Good memories.]]

Emerging from the shower still drying his hair several minutes later, Alfred smiled seeing that lil' Fuzzball had finished his little meal and was waiting for him. Throwing on his hoodie, and securing his boots, Alfred paused. Taking some time, he fixed his hair, made sure his dog tags were clean, and secured his re-breather around his neck. [#00bfff "Come along, little one. It's time for breakfast."] Extending his hand, Fuzzball jumped into it with an adorable mewl. Scratching his furry friend's ear and chin, he deposited the purring ball of warmth and adorable into his pocket. Grabbing his shoulder holster and sidearm, he made his way to the mess hall. [#00bfff "One can never be too care, right Fuzzball?"]

Smiling gently to himself as the kitten purred and kneaded on his hand, Alfred set up a kettle. Looking around the mess hall to make sure he was all alone, he reached behind the refrigerator he removed a package of crumpets that he himself had baked. Procuring a half dozen, he sealed up the container and returned it to his stash. Dividing the food between two dishes, and pouring two cups of soon to be tea, he took a seat at a table, his back to the wall. Setting Fuzzball on the table, the little bugger began nibbling on a crumpet. Petting Fuzzball with his left hand, he began enjoying his tea while his compatriot began his breakfast.

Once Fuzzball got done with his crumpets, he began circling the cup of tea that Alfred hadn't touched. Alfred field stripped and began cleaning his side arm while Fuzzball gave the tea a few exploratory sniffs, then an exploratory sip. [#00bfff "I'm sorry, Fuzzball, but they were out of your favorite yesterday. I hope some of your daddy's favorite will suffice."] Seeming to be content with that answer, and the taste, the little fur ball mewed at him, before beginning to lap up the tea. Alfred and Fuzzball stayed like that for a good half hour, just enjoying the relative calm of the base and the mess hall. Finishing up with his maintenance, Alfred cleaned up the localized disaster his little bud had made. Washing the dishes quickly, Alfred picked up Fuzzball and headed up to their room.

After dropping Fuzzball off, and giving him a quick kiss on the top of his head, Alfred made his way towards the Captain's quarters. Passing the "Research and Development" lab, as he mentally referred to it as, thoughts of the Lieutenant drifted lazily into his mind. She was always tinkering with something. Judging from the lack of lights, she was off elsewhere. [i [#ec2cba What could possibly be enough to get the LT out of her lab long enou-]][#00bfff "Shit. The recruits."] Brushing himself off, and securing his re-breather and shoulder holster, Alfred made his way to the Captain's quarters post haste.

Spotting what cute female in an unique outfit, he gave her a quick nod before stepping into the room which she was peering into. Stepping off to the side, he snapped off a salute to the Captain and the Lieutenant. [#00bfff "Alfred Greaves, reporting for duty, sir and ma'am."]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kaushan+Script:400,700&display=swap&subset=latin-ext] Like clockwork, Mari started her day off with paperwork. Getting that out of the way also got it out of the way of her working space. Like the captain, she had a makeshift table space where she filled out the mission reports, expenditures, and responding documents to higher ups. Outside of the squad, she also received contracted projects requests Haijima. They paid well and even supplied resources and materials she used for her squad. Though paperwork wasn't all she used it for, it was her drafting table. She designed most of her personalized gear for her squad there.

With paperwork far behind her, she was currently working on something new for Alfred, their first class fire soldier, and herself. With new recruits coming in, he'd be leading a lot of their training sessions. This was perfect to demonstrate how people could always enhance their abilities with new skill sets and tactics. New recruits in general, but especially 3rd gens, usually needed a lesson that although they've made it into the Fire Force, they could still do much more than what they could already. Some already have that idea, but could still gain from seeing a live example of it.

Mari leaned back in her chair and stretched out her arms, reaching so far she could feel it in her back. Looking at the time, things were still on schedule. She had just finished Alfred's new attachment for his rifle, but had some final touch ups and checks on her new gear. After that, she was off for Captain's meetup for the new recruits.

Making sure the inner circuitry was properly insulated and secured, she did a small test run to make sure everything still lined up and nothing shifted in the process. With it sealed up, she did a final test for the tensile strength. [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Perfect."]]] Checking the time again, she had a satisfied smile. [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "With time to spare."]]] Mari put on her new boots and cleaned up the mess both of her "newest creations" made.

Grabbing the files for the new recruits, she did another overview while heading over. She mumbled her summary outloud to make sure she hadn't forgotten anything, [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Yep. Both 3rd gen. Both females too. Darcia Lovell & Yumi Adachi. Darcia's from France. Ooooo, Yumi's toy sounds like a lot of fun. Former with a cloaking ability, the latter with a propelling one. Everything else… Interesting. Okay."]]]

Walking up to Captain's recreational office, she saw a petit silver-haired girl in very unique clothes. It was a nice surprise to not be the only one early. Though, the girl wasn't heading in. She was staring into the room from the doorway with an almost blank but mesmerised stare. [I [Kaushan+Script [size14 Well this recruit seems like fun. Wonder if she's nervous though.]]] Before saying anything to her, Mari saw it: the Engine Blade. Her eyes locked on it with awe. Mari had seen many weapons and gear but this one was a first. Catching herself before she became fixated. [I [Kaushan+Script [size14 Hope this recruit has the skills to live up to it. If not, I'll talk to Alfred to make sure his training plan makes that a focus.]]]

Arriving there, Mari greeted the girl [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Hey, you must be Yumi Adachi. It's okay to go in. You don't have to wait."]]] Entering the room she called out to their captain, [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Hey Daichi, one of the recruits is here. She was waiting outside the room and you didn't call her in. Try not to get too engrossed in your workout, Captain. It leaves a bad impression."]]] Looking back to the new 2nd class, [#c73d52 [Kaushan+Script [size14 "Sorry about that. I'm Mari Hayes. Though I'm sure we'll be doing introductions shortly."]]]
  Mari Hayes / Yoruneko / 5d 1h 43m 31s
[font david [i Yumi tossed and turned in her bed spreading her legs out with a light snore. She'd sleep all day like this if she could but her alarm had others plans. The blasted thing began to blare off and on in a loud annoying ring. So loud her apartment "neighbors" banged on the door for her to shut that thing off. Yumi already found herself flat on the floor startled by the damn thing.]]

[font david [#89add2 [size10 Ow.]]]

[font david [i She expressed with a monotone expression offering her neighbor's nothing in response. With a straight face, she sat up and turned off the Alarm clock. Why were they so mad? It was clear in the evening she only set up cause only she'd sleep that long. Letting out a short stretch with a soft yawn. Sitting up she went to her closet to see the outfit her parents sent her. Formal and proper and it looked hella restrictive.]]


[font david [i She groaned grabbing the outfit before hurling straight to the garbage den.]]

[font david [#89add2 [size10 She scores.]]

[font david [i She said still in her mild-mannered tone before going to the back of her messy closet. Her whole one-room apartment was a mess with figures and manga all over the place. Her wires and controllers sprawled on the floor with her other belongings. Finally locating her outfit she yanked it out of her closet with all the force her tiny frame could muster. Managing to retrieve it she held it close to her chest on her bed. It came with a cape a white dress with a strange and unique design. Leather gloves with too many straps and thigh-high boots. It was something a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chunibyo Chunibyo] crazed otaku would wear. Or at the very least an avid cosplayer though either description fit Yumi to an extent.]]

[font david [#89add2 [size10 Heh.]]]

[font david [i She gave a monotone expressed piece sign to no one in particular. Heading straight to the shower before she dolled herself up. Despite being a rather messy otaku she took great joy in personal hygiene. Being a third-generation user had its perks besides the jobs she could handle heat extremely well. She always heard steam was good for the pours so she'd simply put the water full blast on heat. After said shower, she came out in her towel to brush her teeth and style her hair meticulously. She came back to her room lifting one of her favorite Otome games. Eyeing it with an almost deep longing before placing it back down with a sigh. She had come over to her poster next of a rugged older looking man. Normally Otome addicts were known for liking the pretty ones but she oddly finds herself more intrigued by the love interest fathers. It was part of why she could never keep friends at school with her strange personality quirks it wasn't hard to imagine why.]]

[font david [#89add2 [size10 I love you.]]]

[font david [i She said as mild-mannered as ever her face still completely straight before touching the poster softly. Right afterward getting dressed in what seemed like a flash as she headed out the door. Although she took her time walking down the stairs and out of the apartment before going to the fire department. Like usual she garnered strange looks from passerby's but she paid them no mind. Taking the subway trains until she eventually reached her stop in downtown Tokyo. She wasn't far now, after several minutes of walking she stopped. In front of her was the fire department company eight. It was a rather large building yet kinda small compared to the companies one through seven. Taking small strides she walked in looking for the captain's office. It was a bit confusing to get around and she found herself lost. Turning around she saw the Gym with a man working out. Her expression remained calm but she had a sparkle in her eye as she mumbled to herself.]]


[font david [#89add2 [size10 Genta Tobachi? Is that you?]]]

[font david [i He looked very similar to one of her favorite characters one you never could romance in game. Waltzing in she saw the man with an intense glare.]]

[center [b Captain Daichi was in the recreation room. He had moved one of his office tables in the room as to save time between working out and paperwork. It wasn't very tidy and it was against regulation but he didn't mind bending the rules when it came to small things.]]

[center [b He was staring at a few sheets while lifting a large dumbbell with the other arm. He sighed as he leaned back into his chair ruffling his hands through his hair. He was finally setting up the specifics and now he was simply waiting for his team to show. They were scheduled a surprise patrol. It was to show these rookies the basics and some of the ropes around here.]]


[center [b He was waiting for his team to show up. He was almost sure his lieutenant would show first. Mari was a diligent worker who really stepped up when it came to maintaining the equipment Hajima sent them. He could use her and Alfred's help in whipping the rookies in shape.]]


[center [b They'd be the first third generation users added to the small company. They could use the "fire power" as least the higher ups felt so. Daichi was curious to see them on the field. One of them would be packing a unique piece of equipment. He was reviewing over the papers to make doubly sure he knew what he was getting into.]]

[center [+darkred Yumi Adachi huh? Engine Blade? So she uses it with her Ignition ability? I'm sure Mari will have a blast tinkering with that thing. They better bring blueprints with the damn thing if they expect us to maintain it. As for the other rookie.. Darcia? So we got another foreigner huh? Besides nationality and some other simple statistics there isn't a lot to go on with either one of them.]]

[center [b Daichi had placed his weight down as he let out a loud yawn and a stretch as he scratched the side of his leg. Laying back he decided to do some bench pressing while he waited for the others. Maybe he could go and break his previous record. "Nah I really shouldn't push it right before a patrol with the greenhorns."]]
