Hyper-Sapiens (Species Concept)

The Superior Species

The Origin

Hyper-Sapiens are the parallel evolutionary result of the bio-genetic experimentation of Mutants. In the late 1930's a small yet brilliant think tank with radical theories on the pseudo-scientific principles of temporal physics, Darwinian acceleration, and parallel evolutionary morphology, traveled to the isolated island of Aogashima-Japan.

There hopes? Of studying the proposed idea that the building blocks of organic life spewed from the atmospheric ash of volcanic eruptions. Suggesting and composing a thesis that ancient volcanic activity was indeed the source of the very first amino acids. What they found there would quietly change the landscape of metahuman theology. But it would be another 60 plus years before the public would ever hear of the off-shoot genetic cousins of the x-gene carrying Mutants.

What they uncovered would later become known as the 'Kasei Misuto'-(the metaplasia mist). A low hanging nebula produced by the island's palisade of volcanoes. That when introduced to the biological configuration of the then, relatively unknown carries of the mutant X-gene, induced a hibernating metamorphosis resulting in the development of a new genetic off-shoot. These evolutionary eccentricities were labeled as Hyper-Sapiens. Neither human nor mutant, they were in fact a brand new deviation on both species. Concealed behind a veil of isolation, monetarily supplemented by a communist regime and the World already teetering on the brink of all out universal conflict, the morally malnourished researchers were allowed to conduct their experimentations absent any oversight or regulatory draw-backs.

Though scientifically innovative by any measure, their initial efforts were clumsy often yielding little more then horrific and prolonged suffering and death. Concluding that the 'Kasei Misuto' itself was highly incompatible. With the earliest results producing only 1 viable Hyper-Sapien for every 1,000 mutant subjects. It would be more then a century later before the popular theory put forward by the original Hyper-Sapiens - that the Kasei Misuto itself retained unknown properties left over by an extraterrestrial intervention at the dawn of the Archaic Human - would become the prevailing philosophy of the foreign think tank.

It wasnt until the native San'Vuns of Clan San'Vun put forward the idea that - in order for one to truly become a Hyper-Sapien - one must retain a hereditary link to their ancestral bloodline itself as they were the original harbringer's of the exclusive evolutionary trait.

And it is because of this more recent and widely accepted dogma that the current collective of Hyper-Sapiens have advanced their internal scientific pursuits, capable in most instances of course correcting the previously unpredictable mutations to better reflect the immediate environment. Manicuring the individual adaptability based on genetic screening, rather then blind happenstance.

Though the process continues to produce a very limited number of elevated Hyper-Sapiens. Resulting in premeditated candidacy based on bloodlines and pure bred lineal descent. To be exposed to the exclusive Kasei Misuto has now become a sacramental liturgy that serves as birthright for some, and the ceremonial foundation of the Hyper-Sapiens.

As a civilized (all be secret) institution, the Hyper-Sapiens subscribe to an unwavering and strict cast system in which the cultural norms are dramatically shaped by a conformist belief which permits individuality as it applies to genetic development of one's mutated attributes. While still demanding conformity, as members of the Hyper-Sapiens' society are designated a position within said society based on the evolved abilities as a result of the Kasei Misuto.

Suggesting and composing a thesis that ancient volcanic activity was indeed the source of the very first amino acids, the think tank's original study found that water filled micro-pores in hot rocks may have acted as the remarkable nurseries by which life on Earth began. Among some of the crucial precondition for the origin of life, was that of comparatively simple bio-molecules that must have had opportunities to form more versatile and complex structures.These, in turn, had to be capable of reproducing themselves with the capacity for storing genetic information in a chemically stable form.

Volcanic gas, carbonyl sulfide (COS), helps free-floating amino acids to form peptides. It is this unusual reaction which occurs under a variety of conditions that may have been present on the planet before life evolved. Metal ions, such as iron and lead, and other chemicals intensified the reaction. COS decomposes relatively quickly on a geological timescale which is why the Voice Unheard's father theorized, it would be unlikely to have accumulated in significant concentrations in the atmosphere, but rather the volcanic gas would have influenced the exclusive amino acids close to sources such - as hydrothermal vents on the seafloor - forming peptide chains that would chemically stick to nearby rocks and continue to lengthen.

The Kasei Misuto is a cryptic mist told by Hyper-Sapien folklore to be the progenitor of all Hyper-Sapiens. It is the source of their power, it is worshiped as that which separates them from humans and mutants - animals, and makes them superior. It is worshiped as their creator, for without it the Hyper-Sapiens would have never risen to walk the Earth. It is the mist that gave birth to the first Hyper-Sapiens, the Originals, the chosen few whose flesh was not eroded and whose X-Genes were blessed and turned into something greater.

It turns the power to control water into one that swallows oceans, it turns a power that commands rock and Earth into one that splits the land and carries mountains. It turns the chosen few of mutant-kind into Hyper-Sapiens. And it is the Kasei Misuto that is the centerpiece of Hyper-Sapien religion. A religion that is no simple system of beliefs, but as a Darwinist way of life. A religion that demands the survival of the Hyper-Sapien as a race, one that commands them to use the Kasei Misuto to bless and transform the chosen few of mutant-kind, and erode away the weak and unfit ones through "The Cleansing", a religious practice that has seen the Hyper-Sapiens become selfish, unsympathetic, and blunt, concerned only with the survival and progression of their race.

Theirs is a religion that promises a future of dominance, one where those who are weak, selfless and limit themselves by empathizing with the lesser races of humans and mutant-kind, have no place. A future that will only ever be reached through "The Cleansing". The Hyper-Sapiens are few. Their religion insists that they trust and serve no one, that they embrace a solitary attitude to ensure the survival and future of their race.

Similar to Vibranium, Aethrium is a metal whose key feature is it's ability to absorb energy as well as releasing said energy in a controlled manner. These properties are made possible by Aethrium's ability to store energy in it's bonds and release it as needed, rendering it an almost perfect material for a variety of different applications. Created by Sage, Aethrium is often used as a both a lightweight structural material (one which renders planes, trains and automobiles lighter and lessens the usage of fuel) and a near-perfect battery material for powering the world. As previously mentioned, the mechanism behind the metal's energy storing qualities is that it stores energy in it's bonds by 'damping'.

Energy has to go somewhere or change form, and this can be through sound, thermal mechanism, deformation or light emission, amongst others. Inherent to any material is its ability to damp, or absorb vibrations, in its bond structure or micro-structure. As an example, old car bumpers were made of metal, however newer bumpers are made from foamed polymers that absorb a significant amount of energy.

Aethrium however, not only damps energy, but stores and releases it as well. Unfortunately, it features an incomplete energy transfer efficiency, meaning that it can be overloaded as any material can. And though it's energy absorbing properties are otherworldly, Aethrium primarily absorbs kinetic energy, and because of it's array of energy absorption mechanisms, the force of kinetic energy, the momentum is not an issue, enabling one to wear a suit of Aethrium that can perfectly deflect bullets without even so much as a nudge from the bullets' momentum.

Because of it's properties and qualities this metal has a variety of uses. For one it can be used for transportation where mankind is currently burdened by excessive weight. Because it is exceptionally strong and light, Aethrium results in greater fuel/energy efficiency and reduced wear-and-tear at no expense to the safety of the passengers. Additionally, it can be used in medical/prosthesis fields where people could be assisted by something that returns energy easily and is also incredibly lightweight.

The Bokushi

Cabal of Clerics

No Caption Provided
Overview

With an evolving gladiatorial transformation and strict regiment of occultism dogmatically associated with the protection of the San'Vun Syndicate, the highly coveted position of the 牧師 (Bokushi), is one built upon the principles of a warrior society. Operating within the Voice Unheard's genetic cabal as independent agents of his authenticated authority. Constables operating under the expressed design of the Shado-Shogun himself. Immersed in the ecclesiastic teachings of the supernatural occultism of the Shinobi.

Through didactic literary, mental, archaeological, and genetic rarities, adopting obsessive ritualistic dietary principle and extensive exercise regiment predicated upon maturing varying levels of superhuman indexes, the sculpted frames of the new age celestials bare remarkable visual resemblances to a wide ranging carnival of looks.

Eccentric, unorthodox, the current system produces physically and morally strong genetic templates to serve in the Voice Unheard's closed off circle of warrior clerics - (Bokushi). Generating inherent conformity and the importance of the warrior state over one's personal interest, developing future elites with inherent biological markers that elevate the Bokushi above the common tiers associated with baseline Hyper-Sapiens.

The Bokushi's cellular embellishments, working in concert with an augmented GDF-8 (Myostatin), cause alterations that are encoded in their MSTN gene. Secretions, caused by growth differentiation factors that, when coupled with a TGF beta proteins, inhibits the myogenesis process. Effectively blocking the myostain process which has led to over-developed clusters of muscle mass advantages. Natural mutation of the gene resulted in the warrior's significant increase in muscle mass and considerable strength. Furthermore, blocked activity of myostatin gene offers therapeutic applications in the treatment of muscle wasting diseases such as muscular dystrophy. This exclusive Myotonic Hypertrophy's genetic condition can best be characterized as reduced body fat and increased skeletal muscle size. With the strongest cable of lifting 30 tons, though the physical discrepancies between top and bottom tiers are minimal.

Each qualified candidate is subjected to the metamorphic advancements and primordial prominence heightening their durability with complete and rapid physical healing on a micro-cellular level. The obedient warriors recover from catastrophic injuries at an incredibly fast rate (though not immortal. substantial, and or, repetitive damage can and will kill them). This extreme rendition of durability also allows the Cabal of Clerics to take hits from extremely powerful tier classes and continue fighting. Some capable of regrowing missing limbs, organs, and even regenerating entire skeletal systems depending on the individual capacity of their original mutant capabilities. Internally boasting an extremely high resistance to some toxins and most poisons, though large enough doses will effectively bypass their healing factor. Lack of sleep, proper nutrition, or existing injuries are also factors in the rate in which their body will heal itself.

As venerated genetic paragons these faith based militants are armed with a vestigial understanding of the super and meta-natural phenomena encapsulated inside the modern World of mutant and human led nations and politics. Forged through generational observations and clandestine crusades in honor and protection of the San'Vun caln. Experts in the eradication of esoteric harbingers, humans and mutates alike. Fully aware of their Shogun's affiliation with the x-gene class and practices of forbidden oracular amalgamation and biological experimentation. Themselves a mercurial matrix of revolutionary genetics.

The disciplined code adhered to by the Cabal of Clerics - or - the Bokushi, principally centers around the unmitigated protection of the San'Vuns but beyond their initial code and training they have also been tasked with educating up and coming candidates. Indoctrinated through several decades, with preeminent scholarships in World knowledge, exotic combat philosophies, and mutant aestheticism from a well of geographical influences. But the essence of their training is obsessively centered around the elegant sophistication of armed and unarmed combat. Marinating a thin line between philosophically forged aggression, and indomitable nobility. Spartan in body, cleric in mind and spirit.

The Bokushi's superior cerebral intuition automatically adapting to his or her own fabricated axioms based on constitutional characteristics, insuring a flawless catalog of individual martial techniques .A premium being placed on mobility and elusive footwork because of their supernaturally boasted physical elevations which far exceeded those of a normal man or elevated mutate.

Capable of running and or training for days nonstop, track an opponent or prey across vast regions with ravenous persistence, engage an army of overwhelming numbers and prevail, succeed and survive in legendary "last stand" situations and never falter. Manifesting a library of martial arts techniques rooted in the traditional foundation of domestic and foreign combat. Implementing ancient wrestling fundamentals with innovative striking and submission fighting, which are naturally embedded in each members muscle memory. Marking their moves as intuitively automatic.

Predisposed from birth with an ability known as Mirror Movement, this extraordinary extra sensory perception is tirelessly manicured into a form of combat precognition, acting as an early warning system. This marks the Cabal of Clerics as undoubtedly suited to protect the Voice Unheard as he pursues the creation of a genetic utopia . The ability not only alerts the regal stewards to impending danger, it also maps out their opponents moves before they are physically expressed.

Originally birthed as an ultra-nationalist group with an enigmatic longing for stricter Pan-Asianist ideology, and a more exclusive promotion of Asian values while rejecting the Western imperial ideals of the time, the then, 'Koyōsha cabal,' were original founded by an exiled Shinobi and then, Patriarch of the San'Vun clan, Yyu San'Vun. He also held small but considerable mineral rights. Holding a vested interest in the return of Feudal Japanese order; special and elevated privileges for other outlawed Ninja who's land had been stripped away and reallocated to more 'noble' Samurai classes. But eventually they too were exiled or forced out of service leading to numerous unsuccessful uprisings. It was here that Yyu would stir the organization in a new direction. On the surface, adopting a more politically savvy structure aimed towards the formation of a national parliament.

However its covert agenda was the continued aggression and call for the complete military conquest of Asia. It was during this time in which numerous members of the San'Vun family began to participate in the group's internal reconstruction. Systemically subverting the council's more streamlined mission statements and influencing a more proactive approach towards Japanese military expansion and conquest of the Asian continent.

Organized crime was a natural fit and a partnership between the two was a forgone conclusion. And thus a secret monetary marriage between the suit & sword came to pass. Using brutal guerrilla tactics they began to attract the more hard-line and disenfranchised. Now under the majority leadership of the San'Vuns, the secret sect began to use various guises and assumed names. Recruiting and further filling out their councilmen with the dissidents of not only their own bloodline, but those of the countries Ninja class as well. Of whom much of the country believed to be extinct. When in truth many had taken to the mountains under the secret protection of off-brand and distant relations of the San'Vuns.

Unleashing organized violence and assassinations as a warning to their opposition, the Dark Ocean Society were quickly labeled as a terrorist organization. And after WW2, the Society was disbanded by the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers during its occupation of Japan. Yet several prominent members simply bled into other social economic, manufacturing, and transportation based institutions throughout Japan. Forming an Illuminati bonded by blood and unbreakable by steel.

After generation upon generation, it has now fallen to the custodial stewardship of the Voice Unheard, Yazhun San'Vun. Though a mere shadow of its former renown thanks to the unrelenting grip on the country by the Yazkua, daring measures taken by the San'Vun Shadoking have begun a secret war against those who would deny him his family's birthright. Slowly but surely the San'Vun Syndicate has begun to breathe fire once more. Quickly rising to the top of Tokyo's main markets through strategic stock participation, Cartel agreements, manipulation and blackmail. Seeking to control the country's economy through systematic ownership of not only concentrated wealth, but through an iron grip on Tokyo's basic industries with deeply placed agents of espionage and captains of cooperate corruption.

Gin-X acts as a financial intermediary for the Nihonto Khan and is overseen by the Executive Liaison, as is the San'Vun family fortune. This Federal Holding Company is responsible for spreading the creation of illegal credit across a global financial system. However, operating as a dark-banking system, its members are not subject to regulatory oversight. This model also refers to unregulated activities by other authorized regulated institutions.

Examples of intermediaries not subject to regulation include hedge funds, unlisted derivatives and other unlisted instruments, while examples of unregulated activities by regulated institutions include credit default swaps. This may also be used to describe a simple transaction between two individuals, such as one party agreeing to purchase an asset without the burden of standard methods. Or a black market can be international in size.

For instance, in premium-finance, there are routine discussions of global power brokers amalgamating the global financial wealth and power. All with implicit or explicit knowledge of public market regulators.With no known physical location, it has been theorized that Gin-X operates in the digital realm of cyber anonymity. Perhaps little more then a collection of server-farms studiously under the safe-guard of hired hackers and keyboard ronins.

One of the San'Vun Syndicate's most enigmatic monetary mysteries is their use of 24kt gold coins. All through Tokyo these exclusively minted currency open the doors to an underground kingdom of illicit criminal emporiums. A world onto themselves, there is no place these coins do not reach. No dump, dive, high or lowborn establishment in which they do not open a back room. Where a 5 star restaurant opens up to become a Konite dispensary. Where a Mazda dealership unfolds to become a black market vendor for modified military vehicles. They are an ultimate key. Unlocking the doors to a World so very view even know exists.

KS-Corp

Once upon a time the KS Corp signified a commitment to the advancement of technology, science, and evolution. It was reborn as the KS-corpin hopes of making significant strides towards a re-imagining of the company. And though the journey had been long, the notorious Bionic Bushido rebuilt the unique sense of diversity and sustainable success of his family's name. Manufacturing a versatile new line of state of the art electronics and leading edge products for the general consumer. As well as tapping into the digitized extreme level athlete craze of the modern millennial era.

All while secretly operating a small international black market site in the untracable depths of the Dark Web. Supplying the underground cyberpunk mutants and street samurai who religiously upgrade their current outdated suits while dreaming of the chance to mod one of the company's design tier editions. As they engage in nightly covert skirmishes and hacks in an effort to gain an inconsequential portion of potential cash and street notoriety.

Thanks to the innovative genius of the self-proclaimed Omega Man, the KS-corp's make over was a shining testament of modernization. Its financial recovering owed entirely to the displayed development of the state of the art metallic compound known as Aethrium. Key component in the stylized catalog of recently fabricated exoskeletons and form fitting digital under-armors heavily advertised as state of the art under-armour sport suits. The latest cutting edge design with the trademark KS logo.

Planting a firm foothold on the beachhead of extreme sports and combat based consumerism. Marketed as a militarized memory metal with transforming properties and a durability level reputed to be above the levels of even Black Vibranium. Though the research thus far had been inconclusive. Never the less, that had not detoured its popularized counter cultural appeal, regarded as techno-chic, or Tokyo underground.

However, the Chinese Iron Ronin harbors a nefarious and impenetrable secret. Himself a silent seditionist in league with the radical mutant renegaded. Once above suspicion, the Yoshi Senju had secretly shared his influence and resources with others.

On the surface the corporation operated as a day to day business like any other ultra-conglomerate . Filled with 9 to 5 employees, scientists, secretaries, cyber-security, and technicians, guards. Most if not all completely unaware of the Chinese Capitalist's shadowy agenda.

But when the CEO unexpectedly disappeared without a trace, the company closed ranks and suffered not only in its public perception, but in its ability to sustain any level of capitalistic edge. Thus, the KS-Corp went bankrupt.

Unknown to many. It was quietly swallowed up be a group of investors representing the San'Vun Syndicate. Allowing the Yakuza based clan access to all its manufacturing secrets, tools, materials, and potential capital. Yet its true value to the Syndicate's leader, Yazhun San'Vun, was its nanite based technology and NeoSin Suits. Of which he now exclusively owns.

Originally introduced as a bulky exoskeletal means of supplementing industrial labor by the techno-cabal formerly known as , Kaiba-Senju; labor based operations that required the maximization of manual output, its basic yet technological utility soon had many hardhat wearing operations making the switch from the less efficient industrial vehicles of old, to the more agile and productive exoskeletal suits of tomorrow. Continuing to evolve over time until no longer recognizable from its antiquated predecessor. During the innovative years of 'Kaiba-Senju Corp however,' the cyber-conglomeration was plagued by constant infiltration and sabotage, by then, unknown entities(the Wildcardz).

Their cut-throat corporate competitors and pera-military insurgencies, first hacking, then leaking, many of their top-sercret designs on cutting edge composite suits. Even stealing several psychical Carbolithium-Class prototypes meant for local law-enforcement as part of a new digital era research trial.

It didnt take long for those designs to illegally fall into the hands of the hyper-athletic sub-culture of teenage-techno millennials and urban ronin's in Tokyo, as well as other counter-cultural subsets throughout Asia.

Quickly becoming one of the most-have and sought after items on the Dark-Web by extreme athletes, as well as top tier mercenary groups who's special talents were dramatically increased by the employment of the blackmarket suit. The augmentation of physical proficiency and customizations. Eventually sculpted and streamlined into a more form-fitting sheath of segmented aerodynamic protection.

With production stopped long ago the catalog of Neo-Sins stops at the 32nd Mark. Each suit biodigitally generates superior kinetic force, in turn triggering fully optimized reactionary speed and enhanced physical attributes. Thanks to its state of the art NeuroNet, the N'Sin translates external stimuli in stylish chorus with its user's accelerated speed.

Through leading-edge modifications, each NeoSin represents the exclusive individuality of its owner. No two are alike.Themselves a trademark expression of identification. With better and unique mods garnering higher degrees of street-cred.

Conceived and designed by the collective genius of Sage 'Fraga' Manusco and Yoshi Senju, and built with the resources of the Kaiba-Senju Corporation, the Aethrium Argonauts were a series of large piloted robots capable of transforming into electronic machinery and primarily vehicles.

The core component of the Argonauts is that which is responsible for their unique ability of physical transformation. The component is a mixture of Nanite based Memory Metal; a revolutionary combination of highly advanced nanotechnology, femtotechnology (the manipulation of excited energy states in atomic nuclei) and Aethrium. While used as a means of strengthening and bolstering the durability and energy-absorbing capabilities of the Argonauts, Aethrium's primary role was another.

Fundamentally, it's role in the construction of the Argonauts is to account for nanotechnology's vulnerability to heat through the use of it's extraordinary energy-absorption mechanisms. Though it's key quality is absorbing energy and releasing it in a controlled manner, Aethrium's many properties render it the perfect material for the Argonaut Series.

With properties made possible by it's one-of-a-kind ability to store energy in it's bonds and release it when needed, Aethrium is a lightweight and near-perfect battery material. Principally, it absorbs kinetic energy, and because of this the Aethrium Argonauts can perfectly deflect bullets without so much as a nudge from their momentum.

Never a man to take a slighting in forgivable stride, the Voice Unheard had unwisely taken time away from his attempted take over of the other Syndicates to embark on yet another vendetta. A different, more recent vendetta. With one family down and another unwittingly caught in his crosshairs, Yazhun had every advantage needed to facilitate his hostile takeover of the other Yakuza federations. The Voice Unheard seemingly held all the cards in a game few knew they were even playing.

And yet, his mind had become clouded; obsessed, with striking back against the mystical mistress who had unceremoniously put him in his place. Banishing him from the one building, the one esoteric sanctum with the answers and knowledge he needed to obtain his ultimate prize.

In a dark candle tempered room, the negative polarizing skin of the Shado-Shogun translucently glowed. His unique body covering tattoos seemingly brought to life by the flicking flames.

"We dont understand sir. It is not the right time for this. You are making a grave mistake." The harmonic unified voices of his specialized orators, the Trifecta, preached in hopes of deterring their benacator. Seeking to right his course and once again focus on the true task at hand. However, in the mind of the Voice Unheard, honor demanded his vengeance be observed. To ignore the slight would be to bring shame upon Clan San'Vun.

So he ignored his closet confidents. He ignored his speakers. Silently set in Seiza postured stone with stoic acceptance. "We implore. If you must do it, please, do it with the resources you have. Or anyone else. Anyone but them. Why them?"

Before eventually stepping through in full mystical regallment. "Sorry we're late. We came as soon as we received your message. So...how may we be of assistance?"

Children of the Vault
Children of the Vault

Time has been stripped away and my consciousness filtered in to the Astral Plain where these sacerdotal alumni of Illuminati like keepers of the Word continue to teach me the unknown language. They call it the Cosmic Speech, Terrarum, and they refer to themselves as the Children of the Vault. Ancient and powerful in their permutations of prophetic prestige, they pre-date all of my meticulous research. And yet they are but one cult in a presumed ocean of exclusive few, for the Terrarum is power and its practitioners must be something greater then this World has yet to produce while the chosen must remain in secret.

I have traveled far in my ambitious in-devour to master my vocal ability with a stoic and assertive code of conduct, to understand and adopt the traditions of their linguistic tenets.

With the 'Mask of None'
With the 'Mask of None'

They have tortured my mind, body and soul but I continue to push through impossible rights of passage. Patiently developing a divine ability to influence the unstable intonations of my unpublished vocal assemblage. Of my devastating dialog. They've placed me in the Mask of None. Soundproof, sensory proof, it is a horror onto itself. The ministers continually migrate in my direction.They submerge my sub-conscious in the Astral Plain, developing in complete sensory deprivation. My un-tethered mind has long ago abandoned the prolonged process involved with the genetic restoration of my hibernating body. The process has revealed to me the unimaginable realms of untold power just........existing, simply, being....but they must be tactically visited for they are far too delicate to be recklessly ventured in, among, or through....

While in the chamber select vibrations induce Three-Dimensional Acoustics and Fluidic Fields to create a 3D trapping node in the microfluidic chamber. Formed via the superposition of these vibrations the resulting wave is considered a Rayleigh wave.

These waves masterfully confine the energy to the surface because of the exponential decay of their amplitude with the depth of the substrate. As a bonus the waves include both longitudinal and transverse vibrations with a phase lag on the substrate. Once the waves interfere with the liquid in the microfluidic chamber, periodically distributed vibrations are created which lead to periodically distributed acoustic fields and acoustic streaming in the microfluidic chamber.

The Children of the Vault have taken great interest in my four legged companion, Uun as well. His teleportation seems to be quit fascinating to them, but it is our symbiotic telepathy which has arrested the bulk of their intense interest. Like a two-way avenue we project pictures, symbols into one another's mind(s). And in turn may project words or images back much like a pictorial conversation. This is the nature of our psionic communication and the Children of the Vault have manicured this mental aspect of our relationship for optimal synchronization. Solely accomplished through our base thoughts rather than actual language, this now allows us to be able to communicate despite oral commutation being limited by language differences or complete silence.

Deep within my meditative sub-conscious of mental mooting, instinctive interpretations systematically dissect the letters, the sounds, and the art of Terrarum communication. The promotion of lucid dreaming on an Astral level, coupled with an interdisciplinary thirst for psychoanalytic discovery, has culminated in my elevated understanding of my own conservative discipline.

However....it would be years before they're hierarchical traditions would permit my full initiation and release me from the mask. In time I was permitted to form a physical bond with the contracted braille they had translated the Terrarum into. Adopting the finger stimulation and sensitivity to the configurations and combinations slowly grooming a connection on multiple levels; visually, physically, and astral telepathy. But I still have so far to go...

In Search of the True Voice pt.1

Mount Machapuchare: North Central Nepal; 1977 (Day 29)

Even with the added benefits contained within the Voice Unheard's extrapolated evolutionary physiology, he, along with his four legged companion - Uug - struggled in the unforgiving mountain environment.

Where the elements dismissed such boastful claims of genetic superiority and sought to swallow the sole remaining survivors of an expedition that had originally started with a full compliment of guides. Their frozen bodies would likely never be seen again, for they were now and forever a part of Nepal's 'Queen of Mountains.'

A small price to pay as far as the Shadoking was concerned. They were after all, mutants who's genetic incompatibility meant they would have never survived the Kasei Misuto rituals, and there for of little use to the survival of the Hyper-Sapiens as a whole. Their mundane abilities had served their purpose. The teleporter, the tracker, the pyrokinetic, mere instruments who had succumbed to the harsh and radical realities of mother nature's unbridled apathy, but not before providing the remaining duo with a slight topographical advantage.

The Voice Unheard slightly angled his head over his shoulder observing Uug's physical distress as he struggled to trudge through the snow. His portly belly dragging across the ice. With each step his oversized paws sank into the blinding witness beneath him. *Come on boy.* the Voice Unheard conveyed with a visual meme, with but a nod.

However it was obvious that the mountain had defeated the genetically enhanced quadruped. Yazhuun San'vun sighed. His cinematic exhale producing a gust of frozen air from beneath his partial facial mask before sliding his goggles down around his neck and pulling pack the fur trimmed hood of his black winter expedition parka. Slipping his pack off, he knelt next to his injured companion carefully tracing his gloved hand over and around the various cuts and slashes his friend had received in his defiant bid to remain by his master's side. *I got you old friend.* Now forehead to forehead, the telepathic reassurance was met with a slight grunt, an indication that Uug had the heart to continue, if even his body could not. "I got you." Heaving, the Voice Unheard lifted the enormous pure-bred into the cradle of his arms, and proceeded onward up the slope.

Hours Later:

"αˆ―αˆ…αŠΉαˆ‚." Uug had long sense succumbed to the steadily declining temperatures and was now sound asleep in the arms of the Xsoteric. So as the persistent Hyper-Sapien cautiously surveyed the blinding snowscape for the source of the indecipherable voice, the elevated senses of the slumbering pet were of no use.

-To be continued-
-To be continued-

But again the a voice echoed across the ether, "αˆ―αˆ…αŠΉαˆ‚." Yazhuun opened his mouth to speak, to whisper..."There is no need for that. You have traveled a great distance to find us, now that you have, to speak now would only forfeit all which you have sacrificed. And would cause us little harm, while burying you and your friend. Please. Yazhuun San'vun" A voice spoke while a pair of silhouettes emerged, "Come with us."

The Nihonto Khan (Destroyed Location)

 Nihonto Khan
Nihonto Khan

History

With the fall of the Japanese Empire at the end of the second World War, it would be several years before the country slowly witnessed its government shift towards a more democratic dichotomy. Opening up the once stagnant strangle hold centuries of institutional prejudices had inherently cultivated. And by the late 1960's, brought back from the brink through radical reconstruction, Japanese culture had allowed many Western influences to not only be recognized, but adopted and ingrained into the fabric of the social landscape.

No Caption Provided

It was in this unprecedentedly diverse climate that the San'vuns opened the 'Nihonto Khan.' A then, well kept secret in the underground Mizu-shōbai (water-trade) business/night club scene. Possibly one of the fist of its kind. During this era the Nihonto Khan was branded and operated as a posh Cabaret providing illicit and highly illegal forms of entertainment for an exclusive plenitude of aristocratic socialites, politicians, and western business capitalists.

It was also known throughout the mutant underground as a safe-haven for the growing heterogeneous collection of rapidly emerging carriers of the misunderstood X-gene. Perhaps marking the Nihonto Khan as one of the first establishments to not only recognize, but welcome the idea of an expanding World of evolutionary greatness. Nurturing an unprecedented ground for neutral networking within its disarming atmosphere of sex, drugs, spirits and music.

Modern Rise

From the success of its unprecedented beginnings, and the San'Vun family's long but somewhat unimpressive standing within the Japanse Yakuza, the Voice Unheard was eventually able to reign over the Khan's integration of entertainment and capitalistic advancement. Stoically reflective of the ever growing social trends inherent to the generation of the times.

Selectively parlaying the benefits of his monetary metamorphosis into a plethora of unique criminal enterprises well ahead of his time. Transforming the Nihonto Khan into one of Tokyo's highlighted cultural trademarks. But always cognitive and true to its dogmatic neutrality as a premiere and reputable refuge of prominence for elite socialites. Mutant and human alike. Never openly discriminating against either species. Money is never prejudiced.

Now, this elevated skyline retreat offers elegant indoor and outdoor spaces complemented with embellished pleasure rooms, sky rooms, full baths, and powder rooms. No expenses were spared utilizing the best of materials and systems while maintaining the elegance of old world detail and traditions. Coupled with new age architectural nuances. Serving a duel purpose as both Club, and clandestine headquartered establishment of the Hyper-Sapiens. The San'Vuns. And the Yakuza. Firmly cemented in the fashionable lore of syndicated underground as well as Tokyo herself.

Ingrained in the breathtaking realm of high rise luxury apartments and 5th avenue style money in concert with some of the World's most recognizable symbols of pleasurable distraction. Undertaking generational changes in a multitude of areas and continuing to grow along with the infamous city.

A branded achievement of excellence, the Khan is internationally celebrated and unwavering in its provisions for exclusive clientele. Nothing less then the most advanced forms of luxurious amenities and lifestyles of the famous and ridiculously wealthy. Not only setting itself apart, but literally above, the competition. Thanks in no small part to its unrivaled atmosphere of exclusive aristocracy. Symbiotically sharing a secret association with the shadows of Tokyo's notorious underbelly, the wealthy establishment has continued to enjoy its extensive sub-species notoriety. Maturing into a sophisticated intelligentsia of its own grass-roots cultivation.

There are additional oversized bedrooms, all with en-suite renovated bathrooms, exclusive views, and embellished closets, for the unexpected gala or two. Magnificent marble spiraled staircases sweep into an upper gallery with unlimited windows and the original domed ceiling. Authenticated portraits of the family lineage line the walls of the curved dome. Vacationed off the gallery are spectacularly sculpted sky rooms which are wrapped in sun-flooded rooms with contemporary wood burning fireplaces. Further aristocratic appreciation of glamorous antiquity is effortlessly featured with French mantels and hand painted tiles that culturally make up the foundation of the remaining powder rooms. Over-indulgent Romanian doors open onto a landscaped wrap terrace engineered by SilviaCho Studios. Ideal for alfresco dining, sunbathing, relaxing and looking at the gorgeously centered features of the city. Complete with a unique self-integrated security system boasting a plethora of imaginative protocols and indexed integration. Yet nothing beyond the scope of current social accessibility, as the Hyper-Sapiens themselves are the primary source of control and pacification in the Khan.

The ダクア (Open Playable Yakuza Concept)

During the formation of the yakuza, they adopted the traditional Japanese hierarchical structure of oyabun-kobun where kobun (ε­εˆ†; lit. foster child) owe their allegiance to the oyabun (θ¦ͺεˆ†, lit. foster parent). In a much later period, the code of jingi (仁義, justice and duty)was developed where loyalty and respect are a way of life.

The oyabun-kobun relationship is formalized by ceremonial sharing of sake from a single cup. This ritual is not exclusive to the yakuzaβ€”it is also commonly performed in traditional Japanese Shinto weddings, and may have been a part of sworn brotherhood relationships.

During the World War II period in Japan, the more traditional tekiya/bakuto form of organization declined as the entire population was mobilised to participate in the war effort and society came under strict military government. However, after the war, the yakuza adapted again.

Prospective yakuza come from all walks of life. The most romantic tales tell how yakuza accept sons who have been abandoned or exiled by their parents. Many yakuza start out in junior high school or high school as common street thugs or members of bōsōzoku gangs. Perhaps because of its lower socio-economic status, numerous yakuza members come from Burakumin and ethnic Korean backgrounds.

Yakuza groups are headed by an oyabun or kumichō (η΅„ι•·, family head) who gives orders to his subordinates, the kobun. In this respect, the organization is a variation of the traditional Japanese senpai-kōhai (senior-junior) model. Members of yakuza gangs cut their family ties and transfer their loyalty to the gang boss. They refer to each other as family members - fathers and elder and younger brothers. The yakuza is populated almost entirely by men and the very few women who are acknowledged are the wives of bosses, who are referred to by the title ane-san (姐さん, older sister). When the 3rd Yamaguchi-gumi boss (Kazuo Taoka) died in the early 1980s, his wife (Fumiko) took over as boss of Yamaguchi-gumi, albeit for a short time.

Yakuza have a complex organizational structure. There is an overall boss of the syndicate, the kumicho, and directly beneath him are the saiko komon (senior advisor) and so-honbucho (headquarters chief). The second in the chain of command is the wakagashira, who governs several gangs in a region with the help of a fuku-honbucho who is himself responsible for several gangs. The regional gangs themselves are governed by their local boss, the shateigashira.

Each member's connection is ranked by the hierarchy of sakazuki (sake sharing). Kumicho are at the top, and control various saikō-komon (ζœ€ι«˜ι‘§ε•, senior advisors). The saikō-komon control their own turfs in different areas or cities. They have their own underlings, including other underbosses, advisors, accountants and enforcers.

Those who have received sake from oyabun are part of the immediate family and ranked in terms of elder or younger brothers. However, each kobun, in turn, can offer sakazuki as oyabun to his underling to form an affiliated organisation, which might in turn form lower ranked organizations. In the Yamaguchi-gumi, which controls some 2,500 businesses and 500 yakuza groups, there are fifth rank subsidiary organizations.

Yubitsume, or the cutting off of one's finger, is a form of penance or apology. Upon a first offense, the transgressor must cut off the tip of his left little finger and give the severed portion to his boss. Sometimes an underboss may do this in penance to the oyabun if he wants to spare a member of his own gang from further retaliation. This practice has started to wane amongst the younger members, due to it being an easy identifier for police.

Its origin stems from the traditional way of holding a Japanese sword. The bottom three fingers of each hand are used to grip the sword tightly, with the thumb and index fingers slightly loose. The removal of digits starting with the little finger moving up the hand to the index finger progressively weakens a person's sword grip.

The idea is that a person with a weak sword grip then has to rely more on the group for protectionβ€”reducing individual action. In recent years, prosthetic fingertips have been developed to disguise this distinctive appearance.

Many yakuza have full-body tattoos (including their genitalia). These tattoos, known as irezumi in Japan, are still often "hand-poked", that is, the ink is inserted beneath the skin using non-electrical, hand-made and handheld tools with needles of sharpened bamboo or steel. The procedure is expensive, painful, and can take years to complete.

When yakuza members play Oicho-Kabu cards with each other, they often remove their shirts or open them up and drape them around their waists. This enables them to display their full-body tattoos to each other. This is one of the few times that yakuza members display their tattoos to others, as they normally keep them concealed in public with long-sleeved and high-necked shirts. When new members join, they are often required to remove their trousers as well and reveal any lower body tattoos

Yamaguchi-gumi

The Yamaguchi-gumi is the biggest yakuza family, accounting for 50% of all yakuza in Japan, with more than 55,000 members divided into 850 clans. Despite more than one decade of police repression, the Yamaguchi-gumi has continued to grow. From its headquarters in Kobe, it directs criminal activities throughout Japan. It is also involved in operations in Asia and the United States. Shinobu Tsukasa, also known as Kenichi Shinoda, is the Yamaguchi-gumi's current oyabun. He follows an expansionist policy, and has increased operations in Tokyo (which has not traditionally been the territory of the Yamaguchi-gumi.)

The Yamaguchi family is successful to the point where its name has become synonymous with Japanese organized crime in many parts of Asia outside Japan.

The Trifecta, or, The 3's, true point of origin is nearly impossible to trace thanks to their isolated upbringing in the criminal underworld of Tokyo, Japan. Where the Yakuza's authoritative values hold court. These Western born triplets have no known or documented history.
