Chapter 7: Species and Elements Explained

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Species introduction


Students from around the universe, different worlds and dimensions all attend gakuen mugendai. So just what sort of students can you find here? This part of the chapter will;
- explain which species are which
- give information on each species
- explain how to choose your species at the academy

3 Beings

There are 3 types of beings;
- Pureblood
- Hybrid
- Therianthrope

Pureblood

Purebloods are beings whose genetics only contain that of one species. In there bloodline, there has only ever been beings of that species, and no other. For example; A student is a pureblood vampire; this means his whole family before him are/have been vampires. They are beings whose species specific powers are very strong. At mugendai, the species that can be pureblood are: Demons, Vampires, Fairies, Witches, Oni, Phantoms, Time-Travellers, Elves, Angels, Celestials, and Lunarians. (More information in each species' definition) Note: There are NO pureblood humans at mugendai, and pureblood humans will not be accepted into the academy.

Hybrid

Hybrids are beings whose genetics are a mix of two species. They share the traits of one species with another species. For example; A student is a hybrid Vampire/Fairy. Being a hybrid means that the powers from each species aren't as strong as being a pureblood of each species, however, the powers can still be very strong. At mugendai, the species that are able to be hybrids are: Demons, Vampires, Fairies, Witches, Oni, Phantoms, Time-Travellers, Elves, Angels, Cyborgs, Lunarians, Miko, Humans, and Undead. (More information in each species' definition)

Therianthrope

Therianthropes are beings who are able to undergo a metamorphosis into a species other than their own, for example; A werewolf, or a shapeshifter. Therianthropes are the rarest beings, and the transformation is costly (see techniques chapter), however, the transformed being is as powerful as a pureblood. (If you wish to become a therianthrope, you will need an admin's permission, because therianthropes can be quite overpowered. Were-beings are excluded from this) See each species' definition for more information on whether they can transform into another being.

Species

So far at mugendai, there are 18 different species of student in attendance, with various sub-species, hybrids, therianthropes etc. Here is a "bestiary" of all the species, with descriptions, powers, limitations, and hybrid/therianthrope capabilities.

Youkai (Demons)

Youkai is a japanese term for supernatural beings from legends and different cultures. At mugendai, Youkai is the name for Demons. The Demons come in many forms, so if you are a Demon, when filling out your mugendai application, you will need to specify what type of Demon you are; for example: Fox Demon. Demons are humanoid in appearance, but depending on what type of Demon they are, they may have extra features like wings, tails etc. Demons use melee and magic type attacks when fighting- they don't have a particular preference. As a rule, Demons are of a fairly evil nature, and enjoy making mischief and general nuisances of themselves, though they can be very powerful allies.
Hybrid/Therianthrope possibilities:
- Vampire
- Fairy
- Witch
- Elf
- Cyborg (Hybrid only)
- Lunarian
- Human (Hybrid only)
- Time-Traveller

Vampires

The lords of the night, Vampires are a species who are physically unable to walk in natural light without some sort of protection. Some Vampires take special pills, others wear accessories that enable them to set foot in daylight. Contrary to popular belief, Vampires cannot transform into bats, nor can they sparkle in daylight, they do, however, have wings that resemble those of a bat. Vampires are unable to control the element Light. There are VERY rare exceptions, but many Vampires follow this trend:
- Pale skin
- Red irises
- Long, sharp fingernails
- Powerful senses of smell, hearing and sight
- Extremely fast
- "Allergic" to natural light, garlic and silver
- Continuous need for blood
Hybrid/Therianthrope possibilities:
- Youkai
- Fairy
- Witch
- Elf
- Cyborg (Hybrid only)
- Lunarian
- Phantom
- Human (Hybrid only)
- Time-Traveller

Fairies

Fairies are simple but rare creatures that are mainly magic users, though some more powerful fairies have potential to use melee power. Each fairie's power represent some aspect of nature. They come in different shapes but many are humanoid with wings like insects, and their heights are uniformly short; no fairy has ever reached above 5 feet. Fairies are known for being very simple minded, quite stupid and easily amused. Rather than causing a large catastrophe like a Demon, Fairies tend to cause trouble on a much smaller scale, for example; pranks, general mischief making, playing tricks. Fairies are incredibly hard to get rid of; they are unable to die, as they can resurect themselves in their original form. Therefore, they take reckless action without fearing death. Food and drink is not required to keep a Fairy alive, but they just copy Humans because they are quite gluttonous. Fighting isn't a preference of Fairies, they just tend to fly away quietly.
Hybrid/Therianthrope possibilities:
- Youkai
- Vampire
- Witch
- Oni (Therianthrope only)
- Phantom
- Elf
- Angel
- Cyborg (Hybrid only)
- Lunarian
- Human (Hybrid only)
- Time-Travellers
As you can see, Fairies are very adaptable, and as a result, there are many hybrids.

Witch

Witches Are a Human-noid subspecies, there is only one direct line of decents of pureblood witches. The Purebloods usually have Bluely-Green Eyes and defined cheeks bones, to show their athority. Witches mainly use spells and potions when in combat, but they sometimes rely on their natural instincts and/or hand-to-hand combat.When in combat they put the lives of the person(s) they are protecting before thinking of their own. When it comes to elements they have no control over Space, Time or Electricity, this is because the Pure bloods have forbid this, as it can lead to mass destruction or world death. Witches have a very calming personality, they are known to be healers, so this is required, only Dark/Evil Witches cause mischief and mayhem. ONLY White/Good Witches have to power to heal.

Hybrid possibilities (Witches are not able to become Therianthropes):
- Demon
- Vampire
- Fairy
- Phantom (Therianthrope only)
- Elf
- Cyborg (Hybrid only)
- Lunarian
- Human (Hybrid only)
- Time-Travellers

Oni

Oni are an isolated Youkai sub-species who have gone on to create a unique species, they possess the strongest physical capabilities out of all species, therefore, their magic power is little to nothing. They do not use weapons, though some use knuckle dusters, maces, nunchucks, and other unbladed weapons. To the Oni, use of a bladed weapon shows weakness. Most Oni physiques are muscular builds, but even if an Oni is slender, their strength will exceed that of a Humans' by 10x. All Oni have horns and fangs, most have long arms and tough, brash attitudes. Oni hate gossiping, cowardice and unfairness. No Youkai are more honest than the Oni, and their emotional and mental discipline is extremely strong. So is their love for alcohol. No other being can beat an Oni in a drinking contest, their alcohol consumption would be deadly to any other species.
Therianthrope possibilities (beings can only transform INTO an Oni- Oni are unable to transform):
- Fairy
- Elf
- Human
Exception (there have been cases of Cyborg-Oni):
- Cyborg (Hybrid only)

Phantom (Poltergeist)

The embodiments of spirits. They are the true forms of a beings spirit, and have no solid physical body. They can pass through any objects, regardless of material. Phantoms are often confused with ghosts, which are embodiments of the deceased, however, Phantoms are not necessarily the spirits of the deceased; some are born as Phantoms, and sometimes a deceased body may spawn more than one Phantom. They prefer to go out at night, as they are more visible at that time. Their body temperature is extremely low, if a living being were to touch a Phantom, there is a chance they may be frostbitten, because of this, you can always tell when a Phantom is nearby. Although you may not see one, you can feel the cold air even on a boiling summers day. Phantoms have no physical power at all, and are unable to wield weapons. They have very high mental and magic power.
Therianthrope possibilities (Phantoms aren't physical entities, therefore there is no being that is a Phantom hybrid):
- Witch
- Fairy
- Elf
- Time-Traveller

Elf

Elves are beings that are loosely related to Fairies. Except they aren't "short, bumbling idiots" as the Elves call Fairies (they like them really). Elves are intelligent and are balanced between magic use and melee fighting, and often mix the two, enchanting their weapons. They are most proficient with bows and arrows, but many carry swords and daggers. They seem to be quite overconfident and presumptuous at times, and would not hesitate to stab an ally in the back, either. Elves are very tall, most reach above 6 feet. They are a very sophisticated species, and like to wear elaborate clothing, their weapons almost always have elaborate decorations on them. Amazingly, most Elves have never heard of "Santa". They can't fly, but more than make up for it with their speed.
Hybrid/Therianthrope Possibilities:
- Fairy
- Youkai
- Vampire
- Witch
- Oni (Therianthrope only)
- Phantom (Therianthrope only)
- Angel
- Cyborg (Hybrid only)
- Lunarian
- Human (Hybrid only)
- Time-Traveller


Angel

The beings of ultimate good, there is no such thing as a wrong-doing angel- it is physically and mentally impossible. Distinguishing features of Angels are: elaborate golden headwear, wings, white clothing and long, flowing hair. You will never see a short-haired Angel. Angels are extremely intelligent, and are proficient in many types of magic. They keep melee weapons with them, but prefer not to use them. Technically, Angels are not living beings, much like Vampires, except Angels are those who have achieved entry to heaven and now help living beings with their life's journey. Even if you give an Angel a seemingly impossible task, they will somehow be able to complete it. Angels are unable to control the element darkness.
Hybrid/Therianthrope Possibilities:
- Fairy
- Elf
- Lunarian
- Human (Hybrid only)
- Time-Traveller (Hybrid only)

Cyborg

Cyborgs are part living body, part robotic body. A being may have become a Cyborg as a result of being heavily injured. Some beings have altered their own bodies to become Cyborgs. When a being becomes a Cyborg, they retain some of their original species specific powers, but mainly gain physical power. Cyborgs tend to use heavy weaponry as a result of their newfound strength.
Hybrid possibilities (because they are no longer organic beings, they can't transform. A Cyborg MUST be a hybrid with another species, even if it no longer visible that being was once another species.)
- Demon
- Vampire
- Fairy
- Witch
- Oni
- Elf
- Lunarian
- Human
- Time-Traveller

Lunarian

Lunarians are beings from the Earth's moon. They are humanoid in appearance, but unlike Humans, they have incredibly long lifespans; some are over 2000 years old. Most Lunarians are very knowledgeable of technology, and many invented the technology that Humans on Earth use, though the Lunarians didn't give their technology to the Humans on purpose; sometimes whilst on Earth, Lunarians leave behind their inventions and Humans find them. Lunarians are quite forgetful. A Lunarian's weapon of choice would almost always be something that could double up as a tool, like a hammer, or spanner. Lunarians are the cause of most UFO sightings on Earth, though there are some that even the Lunarians can't explain.
Hybrid/Therianthrope possibilities:
- Youkai
- Vampire
- Fairy
- Witch
- Elf
- Angel
- Cyborg (Hybrid only)
- Human (Hybrid only)
- Time-Traveller

Time-Traveller

Time-Travellers are beings that are very similar to Lunarians. They are not from Earth, in fact, nobody knows where they're from. Time-Travellers are a very self-isolated and intelligent species that use mainly melee techniques in a fight. Over the ages, however, some have gained a knowledge of magic. A Time-Traveller's age exceeds that of a Lunarian and even though they are able to travel through time, they have the great responsibility of protecting time from any paradoxes that may occur. They tend to speak in very old forms of languages, because of their age.
Hybrid/Therianthrope possibilities:
- Youkai
- Vampire
- Fairy
- Witch
- Phantom (Therianthrope only)
- Elf
- Angel (Hybrid only)
- Cyborg (Hybrid only)
- Lunarian
- Human (Hybrid only)

Human

Humans are the only species you will find at Mugendai that have no power from birth. All Humans attending Mugendai will either be Hybrids, or Therianthropes- there are no pureblood humans at Mugendai.
Hybrid/Therianthrope possibilities:
- Fairy
- Witch
- Oni (Therianthrope only)
- Were-wolf (Therianthrope only)
- Elf
- Angel
- Cyborg
- Lunarian

Were-wolves

Were-wolves are a species that are therianthropic with Humans only. They are Humans that have gained the odd power to undergo a metamorphosis in a humaniod wolf at a full moon. They are purely melee users, though some have learned or are learning magic.
Therianthropic with humans only.

Custom Species

Shinigami
Shinigami are a race of spiritual beings that act as enforcers and psychopomps who all share similar supernatural powers. They are souls with a high level of innate Spiritual Energy, recruited from the ranks of the residents and nobility of the Soul Society. Like all spirits, they cannot be detected by normal humans. Shinigami use their Zanpakutō, supernatural swords that are the manifestation of their owners' power, to perform soul burials on Pluses. Shinigami also use their Zanpakutō as well as magic known as Kidō to fight their arch-enemies, the Hollows.

Hospital creature

The Hospitals were one of the 3 orders taking part of the crusades (with the Templars and the Teutonics knights). They were at the same time monks, warriors and doctors, inventors of the first hospitals on the holy lands of Jerusalem. After the 10th crusade, they installed their main base in Rhodes and named themself the Malte's knights before becoming an humanitary organisation which still exist. But they had a lot of money from the commercial exchanges with their allies in the middle east, in more, the pope decided to give them the templars' gold in order to forbid Philippe le Bel to take it from the Church, they so started to use their skills in biochimy and their money to create some kind of improved God's servant. The Templars and the Teutonics did the same, but in more aggressives ways since their researches were, in the end, paid by Bismark, the anti-communist america, Hitler himself. The order of the Hospital had enough with his money and stayed under the control of the Vatican, they so created a more defensive protector of the catholics, the "Regenerator" as the anglicans named them in the religious war in Ireland (see Hellsing). These early creations were made to compete with the oldest vampires, able to instantly regenerate injuries, having an eternal youth but able to walk under the sun and carrying any holy object to fight the abominations. Their number is maintened to 5, in order for the Vatican to easily control them, so you'll sure never meet one in this school, but you may meet one of their descendants. Much weaker than their fathers, they aren't stronger than the average human and regenarate injuries slowly, even if they still can regenerate any injury which isn't deadly. Their main advantage come from their resistance to the unholy, it's be dangerous for a vampire to drink their blood, they'll never turn into a wereworlf and any unholy creature will feel weaker in their proximity. They look exactly like humans, exept for their red crux-shaped iris in their black eyes reminding their hospital origin. Since 1950, the pope recognized the Opus Dei as an assembly on the side of the Vatican and ordered them to take care of these descendant and make them useful for the catholic community.
Characters:

Elements

At Mugendai, every student is able to control one element, the element they are able to control from birth. Some extremely powerful students can go on to learn to control two elements, or even three (another basic element, or an expert element), if the element they wish to go on to control is compatiable with their genetic capabilities. Most students base their techniques around their element, and their gift is almost always based around their element.

Basic Elements

"The Firey" - Control over an aspect of Fire.
"The Windy" - Control over an aspect of the Air (or other gases).
"The Earthy" - Control over an apect of Earth (non-plant objects- rocks, lava, the ground etc.).
"The Watery" - Control over an aspect of Water (or other liquids).
"The Stormy" - Control over an aspect of Electricity (conducting/insulating etc.).
"The Freeze" - Control over an aspect of Ice (temperature control etc.).
"The Wood" - Control over an aspect of Floral Objects (flowers, trees, other plants etc.).

Expert Elements

"The Dark" - Control over an aspect of Darkness.
"The Light" - Control over an aspect of Light.
"The Soul" - Control over an aspect of Spiritual Entities.
"The Time" - Time manipulation.
"The Dream" - Control over an aspect of Thought.
"The Space" - Dimensional manipulation.

Note: No Students can learn Expert Elements straightaway. There are certain criteria that MUST be met:
- Elite Rank and 7000+ points
- Have at least 300 points in each stat bar.
- Recommendations from at least 5 Admins/Mods/Teachers
- Been an active student for at least 6 months.

When you reach this, not only will you gain control of an expert element, but you will gain the use of another weapon/tool!

Special treat for Cecilla/Kraatz: "Vanilla ice cream sundae"!
