Summarized intros to the personal interpretations of my muses.
Q / Yumeno Kyusaku
Frances Burnett ( OC )
C / Carlotta Lorenzini ( OC )
Q / Yumeno Kyusaku
Nonbinary / 13 / (Formerly) Port Mafia / GrayAce
ABILITY: Dogra Magra
A mind control curse type ability. The targets affected are sent into a maddened state with a ravaged consciousness full of hallucinations. In order for Dogra Magra to activate, the target had to have hurt Yumeno in some manner to the point Yumeno bleeds and bruises. Psychological pain amplifies the effects upon those subjected to Dogra Magra’s maddening ability. It formerly required ripping their doll’s head, but they can now do this via merely thinking enough negative thoughts.
The only way Yumeno’s powers can be cancelled is via power that can cancel abilities (ex. Dazai’s ability “No Longer Human”) or for the affected to be killed.
▸ VERY CANON DIVERGENT! Branches off during the part where Dazai and Chuuya go to retrieve them from Steinbeck and Lovecraft. Q awakens sooner and manages to free themselves somehow before being intercepted. From there, they’re on the run to parts unknown. They also have slightly more control over their power and are actually some sort of lesser deity.
▸ One ominous little kiddo. Also a sassy lost child with a morbid sense of humor. Likes to gleefully say they're the embodiment of hell itself, but is actually afraid of encountering anything of the sort in real life. Lovecraft’s “daschund” balloon animal still haunts their consciousness. No more balloon animals, please oh no.
▸Has no family to call their own so they end up talking and playing with whoever and whatever they feel like. They carry a doll for comfort and for the sake, but, at the end of the day, its just a child’s toy. Yumeno’s tried again and again to get rid of it, but it always reappears (and they feel bad having to abuse it further).
▸ A tiny, confused, ticking time-bomb who feels there is no future for them, yet, somewhere in the tangle of madness and confusion, Yumeno longs to at least have a happy ending -- a happy ending where they can live in peace without having to meet an early end. So, even if they must walk the Earth forever, as long as they’re no longer someone else’s doll, they’ll keep searching.
Male / 21 / Member of The Guild (Hitman) / Hetero
ABILITY: Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer
Mark’s ability summons doll-like creatures he named Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Attaching either of them to one of his bullets allows Mark to pinpoint a target’s location and shoot said target with absolute accuracy. Huck and Tom are telepathically linked, enabling Mark to perform long-distance surveillance using them. This ability can be utilized together with other machinery, though this increases the likelihood of the ability being jammed.
He’s still a very skilled marksman without it, but for near-impossible operations and tasks, he’ll utilize his two buddies to the fullest.
▸ WEEEEEEEEEEELCOME TO HIMBOOOOOOO INC.! HOW MAY HE EAT YOUR ORDER AND COMPLIMENT YOUR FACE TODAY, SIR OR MA’AM?? Though, more accurate term he likes to use is "Not shootin’ your fuck bucks into the wrong fuckhole”. Mark is more than human, yet somehow neither a god nor demon. He’s more like a cryptid that appears at the local supermarket sometimes. A contender to the non-elusive F.lorida Man.
▸ A young man who works for a secret band of merry menaces as a hitman extraordinaire. Loves to humblebrag about how many bullets he shot per minute per every opportunity he gets. Quite the madman, but a seasoned one with all the sides of a fast food menu (sometimes literally) in his shirt. He’ll put a bullet between a person’s eyes just for sport, he says, it might be fun, he says also.
▸ He can’t quite stray from the border of life and death for a quarter of a second on some days, yet he’s quite the professional. So, somewhere out there in the big, bright multiverse, he was blessed with two fairy god brothers to make sure he doesn’t turn himself into an elder god or greater cryptid lord over not getting his cheesesteak and fries last Wednesday.
▸ Proud, humble boyo from the American South, comes from a big family, but left that life behind for his own reasons. He’ll send money home time to time, but he’d rather invest his bucks into meals that would feed ten or more families within his paycheck budget. Food is a must for the hungry hunter, after all. He believes his family is better off without him anyway.
▸ His hobby is homing in on the nearest person and secretly tethering himself to their schedule (possibly for a few hours, maybe until the end of time). Hard to get rid of, you will be buddies one way or another, and don’t try to run away because he can track you somehow. Your and the crumbs in your inventory~!
Female / 25 / Member of The Guild (Sr.Secretary)/ Surviving Guild Forces Member (Verse Dependent) / Hetero
ABILITY: The Secret G.arden
An unusual yet potent Ability that was once thought to be simple duplication of inanimate objects via touch. Now, it appears its user allows more to know some of its secrets.
The Secret G.arden takes the form of invisible ivy and briar vines rooted in her body. These vines allow Frances access to a small array of powers such as replication of broken items via touch or regenerative durability via her vines wrapping around her. It is a symbiotic (formerly parasitic) ability that remained a secret up until recent mainly due to Frances taking all possible measures to remain in control.
Although, trying to maintain this Ability alone -- an Ability that has a mind of it own like a pet on some leash -- cruelly tears apart her mental fortitude under her content gaze. One temper tantrum could lead to heaven rending yet again.
▸ A sweet, friendly and hard-working little lady that speaks with a whimsical little accent. Though seemingly scatter-brained, she’s actually quite skilled a bit in a number of practical skills (ie. gardening, smithing/tinkering, outdoor survival, archeology, mental math). Has quite the resume for her age. Plus, she not only cooks, but knows where all the best restaurants and food stands in town are!
▸Grew up in the UK as Frances Hodgeson and moved to the USA after losing her parents in an earthquake during The Great War. She was raised by an elderly couple, The Burnetts, that worked with a local museum and pursued a number of others sciences (which also seemed to include the supernatural). Frances "inherited” some of their enthusiasm and keeps their work close to her heart even though for safety purposes she’s destroyed and burned much of it.
▸ She seems too happy, too optimistic, and one would be right to be a bit concerned and worried. Literal bullets and blunt trauma are never enough to stop her. There is definitely layers of mysteries to this woman, and not even those in The Guild have excavated deep enough to realize how potentially dangerous she is. Beware the short people with shorter tempers. Though it seems hard to anger her, its not impossible. If she blows up, it might be hard to see her the same ever again.
▸ A young lady afflicted with accursed power that's gradually sapping at her life and sanity no matter what she does or who help(ed) her. She's a mudblood in HP terms — A human with supernatural powers born into a family where no one possesses such “sorcery”. She's had to live in a world where she not only can't attend a Hogwarts but refuses to because she just wants to live a normal, comfortable life.
▸ She keeps finding/summoning monsters and, while not 100% clueless, she naturally wants to befriend them (or at least sit down for tea to hear them out). Perhaps going “a little mad” and “being not quite human” has its benefits, she says. She wants Ability Users and regular people to live in harmony, but even as she fights, she understands that may be just another one of her distant delusions.
C / Carlotta Lorenzini
Female / 18 / Port Mafia/ADA (Verse Dependent) / GrayDemi
A seemingly simple ability that requires the user to make physical contact (via handshake). Its an Ability that transforms the target into a wooden toy if they’ve lied beforehand. The only way the victim can turn back to normal is via damaging their own body enough (basically committing suicide). Though, due to language barriers and poor control on her end, C can almost never uses it. She seems reluctant to use her Ability in place of brute force.
▸ A quiet girl that’s surprisingly prone to violence and deceit when needed. Vicious as a hyena on the outside, but timid as a rabbit deep down. Her ability to curse a liar a cruel fate as a wooden toy bolsters such a cruel image.
▸ Would (and has) cleaved someone’s skull in over pretzels and clothing, but simultaneously hates that “things have to be this way in the world”. It’s not fun, but she thinks anything else is better than being locked away or writing the same sentence across multiple chalkboards.
▸ Born in Italy, Carlotta’s childhood was filled with grief, mischief, labor, and devoid of any hope someone like her could live with any closure and comfort. She’s also quietly coping with the fact she might not be human at all because of one man’s desperation to bring back his child. Human or not, Carlotta continues on in life wondering what the point is when she’s just someone’s faulty toy.
▸ She made it all the way to Japan via countless instances of trying to escape her previous imprisonment. The Port Mafia scooped her up after her attempted suicide and she was thrown into Ace’s division. Karma was the only person she considered her friend in such a hell. Depending on the verse, she’s either one of/ the sole survivor of Fyodor’s attack and ends up in Ozaki’s division or she escapes and joins the ADA. Either way, she’s quite the violent, resilient little ally to have.
▸ She’s learning more and more Japanese, making it easier for her to use her Ability. However, she’d prefer to clobber someone’s skull in with a baseball bat or her own fist than shake anyone’s hands. She’s also come to accept that she can never truly be a lone wolf while in the company of those who seem to want to protect her in return... but she still keeps to herself in a corner.
