The Rising Phoenix
This is the symbol for the supporters of the Takayangi family who control the martial arts world. The 12 founding families are a group of clans that possess great abilities and skills as martial artists and fighters. Each of the 12 families have unique fighting abilities, powers, knowledge, or skill sets that make the organization strong. The 12 families are divided into 2 branches the white feathers, and the red feathers. It is said that the Takayanagi and the Rising Phoenix are roughly 2500 years old. Legend says that 2500 years ago Susanoo gave birth to 12 children from 12 different women who formed each of the clans.
The feathers of the Phoenix represent the many that must come together to achieve their goals. The Phoenix bears the burdens and difficult task of protecting each feather.
These are people with no supernatural powers. They acquire techniques through hard training, martial arts, and knowledge. Through this training, meditation or thought and emotions; they may invoke upon the so-called 7 dragons which live within everyone and govern the powers of wood, fire, metal, water, and air. When enough ki is consumed, then an ability is born, but their ki is limited, so they cannot keep the gate open for too long at all.
The Red Feathers belong to a selective nature, or element, which they could invoke once enough ki is consumed. But on top of that, they have their own "Unique Dragon Gate" which white feathers cannot invoke and basically don't have. Their dragons are different from the 7 dragons that govern over the elements. It is said that their dragon is that 8th element which was used in construction of the world. When they open their unique gate, a physical part of them changes.
In the Kanto region of Japan, seven high schools are waging an all-out turf war for territorial supremacy: Nanyo Academy, Kyosho Academy, Seito Academy, Yoshu Academy, Rakuyo High School, Gogun High School, and Yoshu Private School. These high school academies are little better than institutions where women are systematically brutalized and raped in order to produce the problematic super-warrior in a forced breeding program that has been going on for generations. The fighters of each school bear the sacred jewels called magatama, which contains the essence of warriors from the Three Kingdoms era of Ancient China 1800 years ago, similar to how the Reiki holds a portion of Iyo Natsumeβs soul; as well as their fates.
Todou Academy was created by the Takayangi and the 12 founding families in the hopes of producing and finding the legendary βPerfect/Super-warriorβ without resorting to the heinous practices of other institutions. The students however, are unaware of this motive and simply view the school as a βfighting paradiseβ.
The Executive Council
The Executive Council is a group of students who are responsible for maintaining order and playing the role of mediator when issues arise within Todou Academy. Members usually consist of upper class men from the winning club/group of the Election Tournament. The Election Tournament is held once each year to determine the strongest fighters within the Academy. The Executive Council President is voted in by the group of the winning team.
The Executive Council has little to no restrictions placed upon them on how they decide to operate. While teachers, staff, and administration are always available as resources they rarely interfere in business of the Executive Council.
Ooc: All new members are required to enroll their character in Todou Academy. This is to ensure Rpers are given time to adjust to the new environment and truly decide if this is the place for them. Rpers DO NOT have to rp in the school environment if they do not wish to. While we are not strictly a 'School Verse' Role-play group Todou Academy does play a large role in various story lines and story progressions. It is also a wonderful opportunity for new rpers to learn how to create OCs (original characters) if they wish to. All we ask is that everyone be patient as we work to set up interesting events and to please not expect us to do all the work for you. As a collaborative rper it is up to you to own your character and your stories. Find others to join in the fun and begin building your team/club/group!
