Nightfall: Chapter 2
Two years after the events of Dream Drop Distance, the Darkness became so great that it swallowed the worlds, locking them away within its merciless abyss.
Twilight Town, now covered in eternal night, stands as one of last Sanctuaries of Light. It is where players begin their journey.
Ever resourceful, the Moogles have created a safe place for refugees. They have charged the Denizens of Light with finding Castle Oblivion: it holds a key to the puzzle of the lost worlds.
But within the dark shadows of the sanctuary world a powerful dark force still looms, waiting to strike. Each survivor must choose whether to go to Castle Oblivion or stay behind to protect the world from the dragon that lurks in the shadows.
Every world needs a hero, and in times of strife, even those who aren't morally infallible can step up to the mantle. Seo-Yeon is a case study on this phenomena, an example that you don't exactly have to be good to do good - and the motives behind all that.
All stories start somewhere, whether at birth, or later in life. This particular story begins at a point of time, at a young age, in the bright eye of a happy child with tools in hand and the ambition of a new hobby filling her heart. Seo-Yeon was blessed into a family of scientists, her mother a biochemical engineer, and father specializing in advanced robotics. She was quick to pick up on her father’s craft, and with his encouragement, created her own robots to automate what tasks she could in life. But her ambition was always the bot fighting scene, often taking her newest creations to her school to fight it against the boys in her grade. As she grew, she was sent to a secondary school that specialized in internship-based learning, training among her father’s colleagues, as well as her mother’s. Her focus on robotics was coupled with shadowing an anesthetic in the medical industry, a talent that would soon benefit her in life.
She wasn’t supposed to figure out that her father’s company owed a lot of money to less than reputable debtors, but she stumbled upon the documents when using his computer to work on her newest side project, her greatest to date. They’d soon be bankrupt, and all the workers out of a job, and possibly worse. Concern pushed her to action, and using the resources available at her disposal, she finished her first bot, Gujoja. She snuck out at night for the first time in her life, disguised in a hoodie and mask, and followed the signs she’d learned before, but never bothered to follow, to the one place she could actually make a difference: the bot-fighting underground.
Though she started with meager cash, the fact that her access to superior technology assisted in her climbing the ranks, wallet growing until she got the attention of the boss of this part of San Fransokyo. He admonished her, not believing that a kid had climbed the ranks to him, had beat everyone under him, but worklessly she took her card and threw it into the pot, and sat at one side of the arena, picking up the controller for Gujoja. The show of defiance had her bet matched, and within minutes, she had his bot in two, and the man threatening her. But a rival leader, interested in her robotic skill, disengaged the situation, and made her an offer: fight for him in the rings, and the debt would be forgiven. She saw his bot, similar to Gujoja, and knew there was only one way he’d have that tech, one way he’d be able to erase the debt.
He was the debtor. And she’d have his revenge.
She never revealed her identity, and for what he wanted, she didn’t have to. The Gujoja line went through two additional revisions before being retired, given to her boss as trophies when she created the Hwangso line to counter the more aggressive strategies that were evolving in the rings. Never did she take on a name in her whole career, a name didn’t matter. But her reputation was quick to catch up to her, when it became clear her boss’ cut wasn’t as big as it should have been. She was followed home, her identity revealed, and her boss realized what had occurred in an instant. He had her followed to her father’s job, where men laid in wait, ordered to wait for his instruction.
It was then the Gujoja line was reactivated, and when the walkie-talkies next crackled, a voice on the other end announced their boss was down, and the authorities arrived soon after to arrest the assailants. She’d prepared for the eventuality, and in one fell swoop, seized her boss’ assets, and quietly had him arrested. But it wasn’t enough, the company needed more.
So she took his place, stepping up to her place in the rings as the mysterious Nirvana, employing those bot builders who were young and desperate. She tempted them in with sponsorships, provided them gear, and worked closely with her father to fund her effort once the company was stable. Her life was good, but there was an issue rising in the crime rings. The prevalence of actual crime, past gambling, began to permeate the scene. Drug trafficking, smuggling, black market sales, they threatened the integrity of the rings. And she’d have none of that.
With the resurgence of heroes in the city came a new one, striking in the slums. All those caught with their illegal goods were in oddly high spirits, and rumors amongst the slums spoke of a girl, clad in mask and urban gear, wielding nothing but the robots she used to bring down her targets. Nirvana, the underground hero.
And then the Nightfall came, and with it, the Heartless threat. San Fransokyo stood on the brink of destruction, pushing the girl into a desperate choice. One after another, she took control of the other rings, whether by the force of her own, or with sizable bribes, and began putting the fighters to use, their bots fending off the Heartless menace until a more effective answer could be found. Additionally, her rings began to be attacked by a villain called The Dragon, though none could remember the face of their kidnapper or what their motive was, Nirvana was always quick to save them. In doing such, she earned the loyalty of her subjects, and the many hearts of San Fransokyo looked to Nirvana as a protector. The wishes of their heart were strong, as they wished to save their home, and by the will of the hearts of the world, she was chosen by the Keyblade, using her newfound power to erect a barrier around a majority of the city which kept the Heartless out. With the time she bought, anti-Heartless measures were taken, and she fought on the front lines, against the likes of the darkness and The Dragon alike. The recent discovery of her power to travel between worlds has also taught her much of what the Keyblade is capable of, and her most recent excursion brought her to the ruin of Twilight Town, an example of what failure would look like for them.
WEAPONS 용 이빨 (Yong-ippal): Seo-Yeon’s personal Keyblade, formed when the greatest power she had was her Yong-model bots. The blade is seemingly made from the same alloy plating used in the robots, lined with LED strips that pulse blue and white, with the teeth composed of three teeth shaped blue crystals, that perpetually have lightning dancing through them. This keyblade is aligned with the electric element, and allows her thunder spells to strike two opponents instead of one
ABILITIES: Thundra: Two opponents are struck with lightning bolts that are launched from Seo-Yeon’s hand. Can also be used by her bots when in Total Control. Yong Mk. VI: Three robots that Seo-Yeon can deploy at will, agile and small. They are used best for surveillance, and have a high enough degree of artificial intelligence to follow a target. She can also manually control them with the holo-computer on her wrist, as well as allow them to discharge her magic at a range of up to thirty feet. Thunder Raid: Seo-Yeon throws her Keyblade, bouncing it off one target to hit another before returning to her hand. Aero: A small area is covered in a near-unseeable vortex that, if stepped upon, will unleash wind magic to knock them briefly skyward.
DRAWBACKS: Grounding: Her magic tends to work better when targets aren’t standing on a conductive surface to ground themselves. Should they find themselves swept off their feet, the electric shock would definitely leave a bite, but minor injury is the best she can manage so far with her current skill set.
Seo-Yeon is loyal to family first and foremost, and home second. She fights to protect everything she holds dear, and in observing the catastrophe of the Nightfall, is looking to what lengths she has to take to reverse the damage it caused. She is well versed in the working of technology and medicine, a valuable toolkit to those suffering int he Nightfall. She is kind to those who earn it, and respects those who keep the peace, though any threats to how she does thing are met with swift and aggressive resistance.
