WALKING THE BRINK BETWEEN DARKNESS AND LIGHT
Inspiration: The inspiration behind this character is my strong, spiritual belief that balance is key to life. Like said belief, Shaizen is balanced perfectly between Light and Darkness, and fights to keep the balance as such. Shaizen is also based off my own impulse to fight for those he cares for, and any he may come to care for.
Emotion: Shaizen also is, in a way, based off my ability to be nearly emotionless whenever I wish. While I am usually a rather happy-go-lucky guy who gives no Fs, I can also become rather emotionless should the need ever arise. Shaizen almost always has his emotions under control in such a way. Very rarely does he ever show emotion, even when with friends.
Shaizen was born in a little-known word called Luniel. His family was among the higher ranks of the Phoenix Guard, and were greatly respected by the Tirealian community. The city he was born in, Tireal, was the capital city of the civilization and was placed directly between the Light and the Darkness of the world, in perfect balance. While outside the walls was a rather beautiful land, it was also dangerous. Bandits roamed the lands, banned from the cities due to certain crimes, from smuggling to more destructive crimes. Occasional battles raged outside the walls as Shaizen grew up, reminding those within the walls that not all was so grand within the world of Luniel. Along with the bandits was the occasional heartless, though they were rare and weak when seen.
The Tirealians remained within the castle walls, leaving the city only through teleportation devices to go to one of the other cities. Larger parties of people, such as trading caravans, had to travel by foot to the other cities, as the teleportation devices had a limit of size and certain materia and to be transported at once. Shaizen grew up within the Phoenix Guard barracks, where his family stayed in order to better complete their duties. He almost never saw his parents, both always off to do battle within outside the city, sometimes gone for weeks at a time. When he was six, he received a message from the Phoenix Guard Scout that both of his parents had been taken by heartless, and he was left alone.
After he hit the appropriate age, he began training with his the Head of the Guard, named Gil. Gil had fought alongside his father, and had taken Shaizen in as respect towards his father. He was first trained him with a sword, toiling endlessly to master the art if the blade. During his time training, he and Gil became close, and he soon began to think of Gil as a father. Once he mastered the sword, Gil taught him to harness Light and Darkness as magics, to use them during battle, while not being taken by either of the powers during their use. It took Shaizen many years to master Light magics, and to hone his skill with with it, during which time, Gil would test him over and over until he was satisfied with the results. He still has yet to master that of Darkness though. Once Shaizen hit 20, Gil told him his training was complete, and that there was nothing within the Phoenix Guard he could learn, and sent him out to the field, as a test to see what all he had successfully learned.
On the field, Shaizen saw very little action, until just near the end. While their target was a bandit fortress, they instead ran into something that was yet to be seen in Luniel; a horde of Heartless, lead by a Darkside. Deep Darkness pushed towards them, followed close by the heartless themselves. As Shaizen stood there, dazed and confused about what was happening, he heard the order to charge the army of Heartless. Heeding it, he rushes into the battle as other soldiers rushed behind and around him. As they got to the heartless, he began to fight with all his might. Soon after the fighting began, he saw the numbers of the heartless greatly exceeded that of his fellow squad members. After fighting for several hours, he began to realize that they were going to be taken by the heartless if they didn't retreat. As he turned to speak with the commanding officer about it, the large Darkside heartless appeared on the field and took a swipe at them with its large arm, taking out most of them and leaving the rest injured. As the Heartless began closing in, Shaizen heard another battle cry, this time coming from Gil and a smaller army of Guards. They pushed back the Heartless as the injured were taken into the city, Shaizen watching as Gil closed the gates before passing out.
Waking up in a hospital, the first thing Shaizen realized was the pain in his chest where he had been struck by the heartless. Taking the covers away, he saw a large bandage wrapped around the area where the wound was. Gil appears at that moment, explaining what had happened, and that, even though he was a little too late in giving the order, Shaizen had passed the test by realizing that not all battles can be won. He would then help Shaizen get dressed into an official Phoenix Guard uniform, walking him to a ceremony that was being set up and explaining that after he was through with the ceremony, he would be ordered to go 'elsewhere'. Shaizen was unsure what that meant, but he thought that perhaps it meant another city. Gil would then explain that The three heads of the guilds within Tireal would speak with him, Shaizen, completely taken by surprise, began to wonder what was actually happening, Gil saying he was unable to say.
Within the next week, Shaizen recovered due to the advanced healing of the mages there. Once recovered, he got word from the Heads, summoning him to the Spire, their headquarters. As he arrived, he saw the three leaders waiting for him. The Unwavering Talon of the Phoenix Guard, The Collected Amber of the Scribes, and the Giddy Cid of the Wigs. He would bow to them, showing respect to all of them before saluting to Talon. After he was finished greeting them, they would begin to congratulate him on becoming a high ranking Phoenix Guard, and would honor him for such. They then explained that he was indeed going to another city, one that was in the darkness. It was the city of Yolin. They said while they were unsure if he would make it, as the teleportation devices did not reach out that far, that he was the one up for the task.
The next day, he would say goodbye to his comrades and to Gil, armed with the finest weapons the city could offer and sent on his way.
He was never to make it to Yolin. After exiting the city, he walked for hours, soon to come across a wall of darkness. Heartless were pouring from the wall, rushing off in different directions until another Darkside appeared, this one even larger that the first. The power emitting from this beast was intense, enough to surround and envelope Shaizen in Darkness. Fighting to remain balanced as he had always known, he cloaked himself in a protective barrier, given to him by Gil. The darkness would grow darker and darker, covering his view until he was to pass out, unaware of anything until he woke again. He was in a rather odd place, one unknown to him. It was strange, even felt different than home. He tried contacting Tireal, but was left unanswered, deciding to wonder and discover just what this new place was...
Present/Recent standings and locations: Shaizen has come to accept his being placed within Twilight Town, and has decided to do what he can to fight back against the Darkness which poisons the world.
He recently went to a Heartless-infested underground with the aid of Mikhail to re-acquire his bag of belongings, including the materials to repair his weapons.
Home World: Shaizen's home world is a little known world balanced perfectly between Light and Darkness, named Luniel. The world itself is perfectly balanced as well, Light and Darkness equal throughout the entire world. The two powers are equal in a sense where they are almost like the opposite poles of the world. On what many would consider the north pole is the source of Luniel's Light, shining across that entire half of the planet with its power. On the other side of the world, where the south pole would be is the source of the world's darkness. Despite this balance though, it is a rather harsh world, as the two powers are constantly in turmoil against each other. Heartless are a rare sight to see, except at the point of origin for the darkness. Despite the odd separation of the Darkness and Light, the world is actually beautiful, as the darkness and light fighting against each other forms majestic and wondrous formations on the surface of the world along where they meet. This 'equator' separates two completely different landscapes; one being what one might find on a normal world, he other side being what one might find within the realm of darkness itself.
The Tirealians, named after their capital city, Tireal, have created multiple cities throughout the world, five to be exact. Each city is large, surrounded by a field that protects it from the darkness and light, so that balance within can be kept, as balance between the two is what the Tirealians believe most important. The cities are known as Tireal, Yolin, Direk, Salos, and Brayza, each almost of equal size and beauty. Despite their similarities and common goals, the cities fight each other at times, as each are filled with people who believe the others are just waste, and need to focus more on what their city does. These disputes lead to riots between the different workers, forcing the cities to be divided, so they could work together in a more peaceful way. The cities are all made of an two main materials, one that is a rather bright, white/silver color and is known as Lunar Steel. The other material is called Darkened Iron, and appears to absorb light, appearing black and almost sinister.
The cities are all run by the same three guilds, each city's guilds run by different heads.
The Phoenix Guard protect the city from harm, mainly originated from heartless, and have extreme training regimens. Trained by the head of the Phoenix Guard, know as the Captain, a Guard-in-training is forced to go through vigorous training, being able to get only a max of four hours of sleep in a night before being woken up to begin training. On a daily basis, they train for 3 hours non stop with weapons, against each other most of the time. Afterwards, they run the length of the city, aiming for the highest time due to certain rewards given to the one with the best time. After the run is lunch, in small proportions followed by durability and stamina training, the routine different every time. Once the trainees have graduated and are made full fledged Phoenix Guards, they are given three days rest to prepare for the fight, usually also given money to buy all the food they want. A Guardsman is respected though-out the city, and can handle near any weapon he is given to use, remaining level headed and calm in almost any situation.
The Scribes are the ones who run the magics and power of the city. In a city that is almost completely run by a magic unique to the Tirealians, the Scribes constantly look for ways to improve the ways to power the city. Magic powers the transportation, the electronic devices, including lights, automatic doors, and other day-to-day objects. Most transportation around the city is done by teleportation devices, as the streets of the city are used mainly for kiosks. A Scribe is chosen by the Grand Scribe, and is chosen for either their natural abilities with magics, their cunning and skills with technology, or their ability to think of new ways that out-do the old. Once chosen, a Scribe is put through a school of sorts, learning the basic magics a Scribe must know in order to perform their duties. It take only a few months, but by the end, a Scribe has learned near the entirety of how the city runs, what magics power the city, and how to take care of the city. Afterwards, the new Scribes are sent on their way to their new lives within the city.
The Wigs, as they are called by the civilians of the city, take care of the city's own law systems, making sure peace is kept within the the city. The Wigs are actually a rather comedic bunch outside of their duties, thus their comedic names. They make laws that are fair to everyone, uphold the laws in court, and are actually few in numbers. One is chosen to be a Wig when they have learned and understand every law, and show the promise of wishing to uphold the laws. The Head of the Wigs, known as the Big Wig, takes the advice and suggestions of his council, who make up the rest of the Wigs and number around twenty. As a council, they decide the verdict, they decide how to best run everything that is fair to everyone.
Even though each City has the same three Guilds, each of the five has its own specialty. They are all based in a location that suits their needs and specialization. And while each of them uses Lunar Steel and Darkened Iron, they are all made of different materials that better help them in their day-to-day activities.
Tireal itself specializes as a hub, connecting the other cities together, and tends to be a central market, along with training most of the three guilds' members. Made mainly from Lunar Steel and Darkened Iron, the occasional brick wall or plaster can be seen within the markets themselves. Cluttered and more populated than the other cities, it is almost never quiet, with people walking at all times and the stores open around the clock.
Yolin dedicates its resources to providing food for the Tirealian civilization, along with providing clothing. A city who's buildings are only supported with Lunar Steel, it's main structural material is brick, the shine from the Lunar Steel mixed with a red hue. Most people within this city are dressed in rather odd clothes, each person in their own style as they make their own clothes along with that of the rest of the cities. A city known as colorful and usually upbeat, the people within are actually offended easily if you show sign of dislike towards their looks and styles. This city houses the main Headquarters for the Wigs, as the guild of cheerful, usually upbeat members find the city to be just their style.
The citizens of Direk work to manufacture the different technologies of the cities, and to also mine the resources and materials used to make the different technologies of the world. A city that is filled with technology, as they test their product before sending it off, any technical minded person would enjoy this city. The streets are always filled with the sounds of electrical and mechanical activity. The people within the city are usually seen bustling around, always busy and rushing off to some place or other. While they look rather friendly, they usually tend to brush off strangers as they believe what their current destination is proves to be more important than the questions of a newcomer. They are usually found within the factories on the edge of the city.
Salos works to forge the weapons and armors for the Phoenix Guard, toiling under the heat of the forges on a daily basis. A city that is usually heated by the number of forges, it usually has higher temperatures, with ash and smoke from the forges filling the air. With the city made mostly of cinder and red bricks, save the Lunar Steel foundations and Darkened Iron mechanical pipes and wires, the streets are lined with carts and lanes for material transport. The city is rather dark, with a more serious feeling always hanging in the air. Despite this, the people who live here, most of which are rather big and burly, all able to handle themselves in a fight, are rather kind and gentle once you get to know them. The main headquarters of the Phoenix Guard happens to be here, near the center of the city.
Brayza is the educational center for the Tirealian civilization, providing the young with what they need for the every day lives. A clean and rather well kept city, most of the buildings are made of brick and drywall with the usual foundation. Educational buildings make up around a quarter of the city's very size, with four large structures and school grounds on each side of Brayza. Filled with scholars and students of all ages, it is a rather quick paced city, with pupils bustling to get to their next class and teachers always rushing to get their next lesson ready. If one is able to catch a citizen of this city while they aren't 'busy', they will act rather hostile, rambling about how a stranger ruined their 'planning'.
These five cities are all beautiful in their own way, each helping each other out due to the law of the land and the Guilds. But under this beautiful outer skin is conflict, each city not trusting the others for about the same reason. While they all help each other, each city believes they are being taken advantage of by the other cities, due to unfair prices between them all. Along with that, they all have their own reasons, as obvious civilization would have it.
Yolin believes the other cities are asking for too much food for too little prices. They believe that, since they are the ones who grow and harvest the food, they should get first dibs at what they want and however much they want, and give the other cities as little as they wish. This causes the other cities to believe that Yolin is trying to starve them out, and thus increase their hatred towards of the people of the city.
Direk keeps its best technologies for itself, including shielding, power transportation, and automatic systems. Other cities see this as Direk trying to make themselves more advanced, thus more defended than other cities. This lead to the theory that Direk might leave the other cities to die should they be attacked, and thus hatred for them rose as well.
Salos would keep the best weapons they forged for their own Phoenix Guard, giving them the strongest and most powerful weapons before sending out weaker weapons and armors to other cities. Others believed this was to prepare themselves for an invasion against other cities. The Wigs of Salos did everything they could to make sure they all knew that they were not going to invade, eventually calming the other cities. Despite this, other cities still have a rather strong distrust of Salos.
Brayza isn't trusted because of a rumor that was started saying that the schools were teaching their children that Brayza was the center of all Luniel, saying that the other cities were jealous of this fact and that they made up their own stories to outshine Brayza. The other cities took this rumor and began believing that instead of just teaching these things, they were possibly brainwashing them into believing this. With no evidence of such, however, they had no choice but to leave the city alone, though the distrust is still there.
Tireal itself is actually trusted, as every city goes through it, but it is a location that each of the other four wish for themselves, as its prime location would grant them almost instant power against the other cities. Tireal acts as a mediator city, keeping peace between the other cities by controlling the prices between them so that it is as fair as possible and making sure all young get the same education.
Outside the cities is what many of the civilians know as 'forbidden', or even 'free land' to the few fanatics of their own city.
Some see it as forbidden because of the fact that outside the city is dangerous, due to bandits who were banned form the cities and the few heartless one might see. While it is rare to see one, an occasional heartless can be found outside the city, and is usually temporarily gunned down by the border guard.
Those who believe their city to be the true city of Luniel call the lands outside the cities 'free land', meaning they believe if you stake a claim, no matter which city claims that area, that land belongs to you, and you have the right to protect it form anyone and everyone. There are some who have joined ranks with bandits and built fortresses in these lands, usually close to travelers' roads. These people are infamous for stopping and raiding any caravans that pass even close to their fortress, and are targets for the Phoenix Guard.
Despite these things, the outside world is a beautiful mixture of Light and Darkness. Within Light are landscapes covered in fields of flowers unseen anywhere else, in all colors and deep forests full of wildlife. Within the Darkness are rugged mountains shining with revealed crystal and crevices digging deep into the earth. Barren yet beautiful, these lands seem to shine at night like the starry sky.
Species The species Shaizen is part of is known as the Tirealians. On their home world of Luniel, they were known as a race of rather technologically advanced beings, with metal cities run by magic, some of which is unique to the Tirealians, dotting the world. The species started off making small things, tools, weapons, maybe a trinket here and there. After years of such, they began to explore more into the world, wondering through ruins of past civilizations and learning new things, discovering unknown magics.
They learned to harness these magics, and began to use them. Once they started looking into magics, they realized the potential of combining them with their technology, and began to rise within a world of war between Light and Darkness.
Using space magic, they built teleportation devices for individual citizens to use in their day-to-day travels. While limited to a single person per use, and without the capability to actually transport certain materials, the teleportation devices proved useful in improving life within the cities.
Light magic was used for a multitude of things. First, they made special lights in the cities that fended off the darkness. Shields were created to protect the cities from any kind of harm, whether it be heartless or even bandits, should they ever attack.
Within Salos, Fire magic was used to keep the forges burning, adding heat to metal-melting forges the smiths labored over all day. Bakeries within Yolin also use Fire magic to run their ovens.
Brayza uses a holographic-type magic to power projectors in order to better portray certain examples and graphs for the classes. Other cities using the same magic to power their advertising for each cities' different roles and deadlines for the work.
They began to build cities made from the strongest materials in order to protect themselves from the war outside. The materials they used are mined from deep within the world, two different materials the Tirealians call Lunar Steel and Darkened Iron. While Lunar Steel was used to make the buildings of the city, giving the buildings their shining look, Darkened Steel was used to hold and transport the magics that power the city throughout the city itself, formed into a system of pipes or wiring.
Once a civilization was built, they began to train in themselves in different ways, forming three guilds within the city.
The Scribes ran the city's mechanics and made sure everything worked properly, using their advanced magics to aid in battles should they occur.
The Phoenix Guard trained to use every weapon possible, arming themselves and honing their skills to be elite fighters, all in order to protect whichever city they are based in. Their main purpose was to uphold the law within each city, though they were used in the civil disputes that would erupt between the different cities as well.
The Wigs kept the peace within the city civilization itself, acting as law enforcement and the court itself.
The three guilds worked together to maintain survival of the Tirealians, and named the first city Tireal, which is how they got their name.
The cities and mechanisms made by these people are known as beautiful and stunning by many who see them. Each guild worked to make life better and safer for the citizens of the cities, despite the civil unrest between the cities.
To protect themselves from the Heartless, they made a shield generator which could only be used by the few who knew a certain spell, the shield spanning the entirety of the city it was placed within. The shield could withstand the strongest of attacks, having survived through the earliest of attacks on the cities themselves. Powered by the magics of a group of nine Scribes, said to be the strongest of the guild, this shield is said to be a physical representation of their care for the people, and their will to protect them.
The streets of the cities are used solely as places to walk, with the occasion of using it for kiosks, with no vehicles of any kind within the city. Besides walking, the main form of transportation was through teleportation devices. These devices were chosen in place of vehicles due to the fact that a few devices would take less power than a vehicle for every person within the city. They were run by space magic, using the magic to transport the user great distances in a split second.
During recent years, as the darkness would grow, the Scribes realized they would need to find a way to fight back the darkness so they could keep the balance between Light and Darkness. Thus, they began working on a form of lights that were powered by Light magics, lighting the streets while at the same time creating a barrier against the darkness, protecting the citizens and keeping the balance
The Phoenix Guard began losing more and more to the creatures of Darkness outside the city, realizing they couldn't keep fighting them so up close and personal. As a solution, they began working on ways to fight them more effectively, with long range and taking them out in bulk. They used destructive magics to make guns, turrets, and other weapons to make fighting the creatures easier, also forming armors in the same way.
The Wigs realized that without an organized way to live, the cities would fall to chaos. Seeing this, they set to work on putting in place sections of the city that were to be used for specific purposes, such as a market, living quarters, or transport area. They marked these areas by holographic signs, each depicting a different insignia to show what the area was.
Physical Appearance: Shaizen stands at just over six feet tall, a rather tall figure compared to most other Tirealians. His eyes shine with a rich, purple hue, piercing into anything they look at. His hair hangs past his shoulders, pitch black with strands hanging in front of his shoulders. His bangs are pushed back to keep them from hanging in front of his eyes.
He wears blue jeans that are just a little loose, though are the perfect length for his legs. He also dons a white muscle-shirt with a black leather jacket. The jacket he wears has the emblem of the phoenix guard on the back, two swords crossed together with the wing of a phoenix blazing behind them.
A necklace is clearly visible around his neck, once belonging to his father who was taken by heartless. The necklace is a simple crystal shaped into a crescent moon, the string a tan hemp.
He wears a belt with pouches in which he holds any potions or materia he may gain.
On his feet are a pair of combat boots, metallic strips running though both boots, adding to their durability. The boots were actually standard in the Phoenix Guard, and Shaizen never wears any other types of shoes.
Humanoid in appearance, yet stronger and faster than the average human, he is a lean yet muscular being with very little body fat and much more muscle. His left arm has a tattoo of fire and lightning running down his arm towards his hand, the two clashing as though they were fighting within the tattoo. On the back of his right hand is the emblem of the guild he resides within, the Phoenix Guild. A simple marking of two crossed longs words with a phoenix wing spread behind them. His chest has a scar running from his left shoulder to his right ribs, the result of a fight with a rather powerful heartless.
Shaizen uses two main weapons, both long-swords, and keeps a hidden defensive barrier device on his person at all times. His swords, name Lunar and Eclipse, are swords of opposing power.
Lunar possesses the power of Light, being used to cut through heartless and other creatures of darkness, while Eclipse is a blade of Darkness used to fend off any hostile creatures of Light.
Both blades have the ability to send out waves of their power when swung, effectively making them long range as well.
The two swords' appearances also oppose each other. Lunar is elegant in design, with a smoothly curved blade that shines in the Light, swirling designs etched in the sides of the blade. Eclipse, on the other hand, is a wicked, razor edged blade with spiked designs where the blade and handle meet, the blade itself serrated and designed with darkened designs of emblems on the blade.
While he once sheathed the blades upside down on his back in order to minimize their use, he has come to realize that fighting outside of Luniel is much more difficult, and survival means more use of his weapons, especially if he wanted to protect others aroudn him.
Due to his inability to control the darkness during his training, Shaizen instead controls the Light. His abilities are based around combat.
Shaizen can channel light into his blade, not only making it efficient against creatures of darkness, but increasing its very size by coating it in a silhouette of Light and allowing him to cut through and dispel darkness.
Shaizen can channel Light through his entire body, cloaking himself in a solidified form of it to add protection to himself in the form of an armor. This armor protects him from dark attacks, weakening their power so that he doesn't take much damage from them and increasing his speed at the same time.
He can also channel his Light into a single, powerful beam that can stagger a Darkside, doing decent damage, just enough to turn a battle should it ever be needed. He hardly ever uses this attack, as it drains him greatly.
Learned and Ability-Aided skills
Since coming to Twilight Town, Shaizen has discovered the use of Materia, and has used it to aid in control over Darkness and better control Light.
Current Materia Light Shadow
Invert: A spell created by the syntheses machine of Dueler X, this Materia grants a two-step spell. The first step is a dome of Light that expands up to twenty feet around Shaizen, converting any energy/arcane based attacks into healing energy that targets Shaizen and his allies. The second step is the Light changing to Darkness, the dome decreasing in size and it takes any wounds and negative effects from Shaizen's allies and forces them onto Heartless in the area.
Fire Flash: A spell that strikes down with powerful bolts of lightning around the caster. All struck by this lightning are stunned and take some serious damage. The locations where the lightnings touches down erupt with snake-like tendrils of flame that slither along the ground and burn all enemies touched.
The limitations to Shaizen come with his abilities.
His Light Blade can only be used twice during a fight, being able to be summoned rather quickly but taking a bit of energy, and takes a single post to summon
His armor takes a single post to form, using concentration to form Light in such a way that can be broken should he be hit during its formation. He can still move around during its formation, so he can avoid the damage should he pay attention.
His Light Beam takes two posts to charge, having to concentrate his energy into his hand while avoiding his enemy and can only be used once per thread. It drains his energy immensely, making it so that he is rather vulnerable should he use it before his enemy is weakened.
His main weakness outside of abilities is his wish to protect those he may come to care for, such as friends he may make during his new adventure. This could lead to him putting himself in harm's way for them, effectively getting himself badly injured.
Shaizen is, in most cases, a calm and collected being. He was trained to keep his emotions held back, especially in battle, unless he believed it were a special occasion. Despite this, he is actually a rather caring person, should you be kind in return. He fights to protect, whether it be himself, or others. He never starts a fight, and only fights should he be attacked first, or someone around him. His only real fear is that of being alone, as he has feared since the death of his parents. While he will indeed fight, he is usually more towards winning through a non-lethal method, should one arise.
He is rather interested in any forms of technology or magics that he find outside of his world, wanting to learn from them and bring the knowledge back home. He has few hobbies, most being based around magics, such as using them to create beautiful little shows. He also enjoys making weapons, as he was training himself to forge a little before he was whisked off of his world.
Shaizen is a more tidy and organized person, in his own way. Where some see a mess, to him, it is perfectly organized, with everything exactly where he wants it to be. He has a rather patient manner, being able to wait for hours on end without feeling annoyed.
In the face of danger, he remains calm, keeping a level head as he searches for the best way to get rid of the enemy. Alone, he remains cautious of himself, making sure to stay out of harm's way. In a group, he will remain alert to those around him, doing what he can to make sure they are safe, but staying out of their way at the same time.
While he has a certain hatred towards Heartless for killing his parents, he could never hold a grudge against them, due to never really seeing them, as they were always off in battle. A few higher ranks thought bad of him, as they believed he should wish to kill all heartless for killing his parents. Instead of this hatred, Shaizen sees the heartless as just another species, fighting for survival, just like they were. Bothered by these mixed feelings, he feels pity at times when fighting heartless, sometimes not even wanting to fight them.
[PTab=💕 GENDER + SEXUALITY]
♦ Fall from Grace ♦ Shaizen wakes up an alley of an unknown town, awakened by a stranger wearing a helmet. Looking around, he realized the town was in ruins. The one who had woken him introduced himself as Marmadue, and revealed that he also was from another world. Giving him a tour around the town, Marmadue filled Shaizen in on what might have happened, and where he was. Offering Shaizen a place to rest, the day left off with a single question; where was Shaizen's bag.
♦ Trinket in the Maze ♦ Shaizen found that the nag containing his necessary materials for fixing his blades was missing. In order to find this bag, he was led to the Underground; a Heartless-infested maze underneath Twilight Town. Accompanying him was Mikhail, a man who Shaizen had only just recently met. Together they traversed the maze until they found his bag within a room that housed a couple of rather powerful Heartless. They fought the beasts and ended up victorious in the end, though neither without their fair share of wounds.
