Ten years ago, when the ashes of the war against the maleficent Kisekian Warlord Akuma Shinma, commonly referred as Newdeath, the country of Japan survived the war with minimum damage to the populace and infrastructure while the whole high ranking government officers and politicians were killed in terrorist attacks by people using Kisekian technology. The country was saved from the main invasion by the creation of an advanced barrier that surrounded the islands in a protective bubble stopping the incoming forces. The creator of this miracle was no other that the current Prime Minister of our proud and prosperous country, renamed Shin Nihon, or Neo Japan for the rest of the world. Usso Namae was one the most prolific businessmen in Japan and the World. Garyuu Zaibatsu leaded several fields of technology and medicine, while also being strong in other fields such as military development and textile production. The owner of this company spent his resources and time into the saving of Japan, and when the time to pick a provisional government for the country after the tragic incidents that took the life of so many politicians the Industrial Party Members choose Usso as the new leader of the nation. His position was made official after the first election that he won by a crushing 85% of votes thanks to his excellent first year leading Japan into regaining its former glory and even increasing its power, by removing the last economical and military limitations placed upon the country in the end of WWII.
The first 3 years of his official period where a time of exponential growth, and the announcement of the new foundation of the Nation was the starting kick of this revolution. Thanks to reverse engineered technology taken from the Kisekian army the quality of life was increased and the life expectancy reached new heights. As the first mandate of Usso Namae ended he opened Inazuma City to the public and announced it as the New Capital City. Inazuma City was the first of several cities built in artificial islands to solve the overpopulation problem of old Japan. When Korea rejoined in one country after the radiation from Russia decimated the Northern and killed their oppressing leaders they asked to be accepted as part of the new neighboring country, as their infrastructure was collapsing and they desperately needed help. In a show of incredible kindness Usso Namae took the mission of helping them and the second city to be constructed, during the second year of his second mandate was Kaminari City, which would function as an International Lobby for meetings between the leaders of the Seven Cities. The Koreans were treated equally as any other citizen and they were allowed to keep their language and customs while they had to learn Japanese. Usso Namae is a futurist but also a traditionalist man, as a young man he spent five years learning the ways of Buda in a monastery in Northern Japan. He understands that the way to the future is the mixture of old traditions and new advances. Respecting the elders and creating new technologies.
During the fifth year of his mandate, the same year of the foundation of Kaminari City, the evil criminal organization only known as Mangetsu started a campaign of terror that ended up with a climactic battle in the moon, from where the diabolical leader of the criminal empire tried to use a weapon of mass destruction to take the planet hostage. A valiant group of heroes helped by the Shin Nihon Gunji and some other military forces reached the Lunar Base, AkaiTsuki 01 and destroyed it, stopping the menace of Mangetsu once and for all. Usso was poisoned during these events and from then on his health has never quite recovered, cutting several of his public appereance, but he pushes on with his job, even with his bad health and continues to help this country. In the last years he started a regional improving policy, increasing each prefecture economy to match Inazuma City, and saved several decaying towns and cities by improving their facilities. Osaka was in the worst shape but in half a year, after legalizing gambling, under strict restrictions, the city bloomed once more as a tourist destination. Tokyo was declared historical patrimony and all the historical buildings and landmarks were reconstructed using the old materials but new and improved techniques, one again showing the duality of Usso’s government policies.
Currently Inazuma City is guarded by the elite Inazuma Police Department that includes several dozens of freelancing agents that posses what people call superhuman skills, and the general populace refers to them as Private Senshi, or Private Soldiers as they work for the police department but can take private cases from anybody willing to pay their fees. Superhuman activity is regulated by the Sakura Supernaturals Affairs office (one of Usso’s esthetic changes of the government was to grant each office or ministry a Japanese flower as flag and emblem) The Shin Nihon Army protects the borders and is based in Kyushu, in the Susanoo City, from where they stay vigilant from any outer threat. The army is formed by elite veterans, most of them from other parts of the world, that survived the Kisekian conflict but their country didn’t. Their grid covers all the territorial waters of Shin Nihon, and their main task lately is to deflect or combat the advances of mysterious new species that appear from the Pacific Ocean only referred as Kaiju, in relation to the old monster movies. Seemingly these gigantic creatures, of animal characteristics are forgotten experiments of the wicked Mangetsu Organization. Unluckly these aren’t the only dangers of the seemingly utopic country as other leftovers of Mangetsu are causing mayhem. The San Yama Gumi and the Raimeir Rebels. Each group comes from a splinter branch of Mangetsu and their objectives differ, but both groups only cause turmoil to our society.
A Private Senshi is a registered Super Human that works as an independent contractor but haves connections to the Goverment of Inazuma and ca be recruited to help in police operations. They have a salary from the goverment but they also take request in their own offices or the ones with not too much experience, reknown and money join togheter in squad or joint office. There are "talent" agencies that find the most promising young Senshi and gather them and train them until they can go solo and get a part of their earnings.
They can take jobs of any registered citizen of Inazuma City or any foreigner that is as Resident or is in the city with some kind of diplomatic permit. The Senshi can also take on request of other people in Shin Nihon taking out threats all over the country. To be a Private Senshi you need to be registered as a citizen of Inazuma City (or being a foreigner with citizenship of a temporary visa like the Imported Heroes) or in extreme cases doing a extreme act of heroism (not 90's EXTREME, but a really important and influential action) to help the City will grant the one responsable an honorary registration as a Senshi
This is a list of some of the Private Senshi, if you are making a thread in Inazuma and need NPC ask me and I'll give you a more detailed bio of them for you to use.
