10 levels underground, hidden from curious eyes, exists a lab. In this place corrupted science takes place, dangerous and illegal experiments are the norm, rather than the exception. The owner of this place is the enigmatic Dr. Kago, an infamous underworld genetics expert, surgeon and scientist, whose infamy is only surpassed by his skill. A year ago he was approached by a member of the Shishioh Household, offering economical support in exchange of curing the eldest son of the patriarch. Upon studying the case, the mad doctor told them his diagnosis; the eldest Shishioh was suffering a strange disease that was eating away his organs. Dr. Kago stopped the disease, but the damage was too extensive, so he found a solution. Gen Shishioh, the middle child of the Shishioh family was the key. Using Gen’s organs and tissue he would craft new organs for Masayoshi, stronger than before, so the eldest son could have a long life and serve as the perfect heir for the fortune.
In matter of hours the process will begin and Gen Shishioh will die.
-Is everything ready?-
-Yes Doctor, the machines are warming up and the subjects are prepared.-
-Excellent Joshu, excellent. I knew it was the right thing to give you this work.-
-Thank you Doctor, but are you sure of this? If we start the operation the donor will definitively die.-
-I know that Joshu, but taking in account how much they are paying us, I don’t see what the problem with a simple sacrifice is.-
-Maybe you’re right Doctor and thanks to that money you managed to complete your two master pieces. The perfect regeneration of a damage body and the enhanced clone of another subject. Those are enormous accomplishments-
-Thanks Joshu, thanks for recognizing my genius, when nobody else does. Did you prepare the defenses?-
-Yes, and paid the local yakuza to also impede any attempts of infiltrating this building. Not to mention the mutants, the enhanced soldiers and the Espers.-
-Perfect Joshu, let’s start the preparations.-
The streets busting with activity, the neon lights shining over the channels, Osaka is alive and kicking with people moving through the busy streets looking for the best Ramen in Japan, or just tourists. Office Employees take the streets after work drinking their asses off, the loud karaoke parlors filled with high-schoolers and delinquents. The hostess bars are open and ready to receive everybody with open arms and overly priced drinks. The City of Osaka breaths and moves, the luminous streets like the nerves of a man, the channels going towards the sea the veins. Nobody can predict that soon enough it will turn into a war zone, as the Yakuza, lead by Aoki Minato, the God of Gambling, are getting ready to resist a siege.
Using his Underground Fighting Arena as a HQ, away from the surface and the prying eyes, Aoki is preparing his men, some of them even enhanced by their employer, Dr. Kago, with enhanced skills and bodies. The God of Gambling didn’t like massive operations, but the money was too much too ignore. This was also a matter of respect; nobody would take him seriously if he allowed a bunch of dangerous Hidden World Denizens do whatever they wanted on his city. From his highly advanced Security Room he prepared his men alongside his aide, a young man that went by the name DGT and was a world class hacker.
-Are we ready? I don’t want any out of town scum getting through our defenses. We are tracking the ones in the city, right?-
-Yes aniki, we are keeping track of most of the possible targets through the cameras of the City Network.-
-Perfect, are the enhanced soldiers ready?-
-Yes, the FMY 1 to 8 are ready, you just need to give them orders.-
-Well DGT-kun, I think we need to see their first move before acting.-
-Ok aniki. I’ll keep track of them.-
In a big Chinese restaurant, Rin Shishioh, Gen’s sister awaited to see if her summon worked. Used her resources and with help of Yuriko, Rin got the investigation that her parents made of Gen and sent messages to anybody who fought besides him, hoping to get their help. Yuriko also went to recruit the students of Inazuma, in hopes of getting larger numbers to attack Dr. Kago’s lab, as if half of what was said of him was true, this would be an uphill battle for them. Rin only talked in person with Gen’s current teacher, that couldn’t come here to help, as he was restricted to leave his island. Yet she hoped her brother didn’t piss out half of the world. A letter arrived the day before, from somebody called Masaoki Takeda, who said he would try to arrive as soon as possible yet he was half a world away. Still Rin didn’t know if this man would arrive in time. She could only hope for more people to show up. Samjaz offered his help, but after finding out he killed Washiyama and even worse he tried to invent a story about her loyal butler being evil, Rin rejected his help. Hopefully Crow Cementerio would arrive soon, since she was starting to feel uneasy for some reason, as if somebody was watching her. Maybe it was only her imagination. So she exhaled and waited.This time around she brought a sword, a gift from Gen’s master, instead of her weapon of choice, the naginata. According to that strange old man, this sword was made to combat mythical creatures and could have some special properties.
