  1. Bastian smiled as the young woman introduced herself, not so much ignoring Katsu's inadvertent introduction of the young woman; he simply wanted to allow her to introduce herself. Her sudden expression of shock, perhaps realizing she was staring, was not missed on Bastian. Though he pretended not to notice, not much of feat behind his comedic mask. "Well met, Lady Mikoto" he said in response to Rue giving her name, "I always enjoy coming to this place. It quiet and the view is always beautiful day or night. Its a decent respite from our line of work." His tone was calm yet slightly deep, like the back end of a wolf's howl. It was then she made mention, though the statement seemed directed at Katsu, that she had just returned from Earth. "Sounds like a story worth telling," Bastian stated while going back to trying to skip rocks to the other side of the sparkling waters before him. "I'm sure it beats the hell out of the task they had me tending to in the village." As his statement finished he tossed another rock, this one skipping much farther than the others before falling short of the goal yet again. "Imperius Rex," he stated under his breathe as he picked up a few more rocks. "I hear Earth is a dangerous place, no strict authority to keep the criminals in line. Is it as bad as the rumors say," Bastian inquired while picking up the rocks. In truth, there were no such rumors. In fact, the most that he knew about Earth was that it was on the same land mass as Lightning. Suddenly an urge to leave came over him. Recalling he had a meeting to attend in regards to what he assumed was his coming promotion, Bastian tossed one last rock. Not even noticing that it had made it to the other side. "My apologies, I am reminded I have something to attend to. I hope to see you both again." He bowed his head respectfully at both and promptly made his exit. [Exit. Not even sure if both of you are still on the site.]
  2. If were tossing up suggestions, I think we should you use the old method of perks for bloodline-less characters. That being you gain an extra spec if your without a bloodline. For example, a C rank who typically has one spec starting out would have 2 if they dont have a bloodline. I think its a fair trade off and it actually gives decent incentive for one to not have a bloodline. Not everyone does, but as it stands its only advantageous if you have a bloodline. Keeping 500 ryo is a joke , just being honest, hardly worth being considered a perk. This is my opinion on the matter, though.
  3. Characters Involved | Bastian Belmont Link to the Missions | Link Here Brief Overview | Bastian assists the hospital who happen to be short-handed with the recent stepping down of the Head Adviser. In the process he is once again educated on the finer concept on being a decent human being.

He walked into the hospital, which was surprisingly lively despite it being so early in the morning. After a bit of inquiring it was discovered that the recently crowned head adviser had already stepped down and went on to pursue other things. This put the entire medical community in a bit of a bind as the scrambled to maintain a semblance of order, "Damn, doc, what a mess you left behind," he thought as he traversed the hospital looking for his mother. Typically when he was tasked with coming here to assist, he'd report to her and assist her with whatever she was doing at the time. Fate had other plans for the young Belmont, as he was snatched up by one of the nurses who requested his help moving a patient. From there was nothing, but sheer chaos as Bastian found that he had been enveloped in the sea of confusion. For a short time he was nothing more than muscle, moving a patient here or retaining a patient there. This went on for a few hours before he was drafted into assisting in a few surgeries, given that he had some knowledge of the tools used; at least in name. By the time he was offered a break, Bastian was exhausted and feeling slightly more sympathetic to the fact his mom had to do this everyday. On top of that, she would even walk home after work. He'd made it a point to do something nice for her, to show he truly appreciated all that she had done to get both of them here. Not to say his father had nothing to do with it since all who knew his mom, knew that she was rather good at making money. Secretly the backbone to her husband's success. He was so deep in his thoughts that he had hardly noticed his mother had come over to the lobby bench he was sitting on. "You look tired, kid, this little nurse stuff to much for ya," she said jokingly as she ruffed up his afro. He didn't resist the assault, to uncaring to really put up a decent fight. "I literally had to clean up shit from some old guy's bed," he replied plainly. The two sat quietly for a moment before they both burst into laughter. "How are things, kid," Furie spoke as Bastian removed his mask, he knew she hated when he spoke to her wearing it. "I don't complain," he said with a shrug before resting the back of his head on the wall behind him. He looked at the ceiling mulling over the recent events of discovering a traitor among the patrols. Even worse it was one in a position of power, being that he was a dispatcher. This concerned the young shinobi because he highly doubted that he was the only one. In hindsight, he should have at least used the man to discover who else were apart of this Yard Gang infiltration scheme. His rash thinking had ultimately caused him to be left with nothing but foul taste in his mouth. A tug on his ear brought him once again back to reality, not realizing he was still staring at ceiling. "Hey, lets bring it back to this world," Lady Furie stated, "If something is on your mind, you can always tell me Bastian. I know you don't like to play the dependent role, but you don't have to shoulder it all on your own. Sometimes having someone just hear you out is enough to take some of the pressure off." "I'm aware, ma. If it ever gets to where I can't handle something, I'm not foolish enough to just run in when I could have help. However," he said finally actually looking at her, "I also know that unless you are pushed to overcome obstacles, you will forever be a limited individual. Therefore its also not in me to not try to do it on my own. Just like the choice of when I decide the need to pour my heart out, it'll be my own." Furie thump Bastian on the forehead almost immediately after he finished, with an unimpressed expression on her face. "Save that macho crap for someone who didn't change your diaper, you little shit," she said with a smirk before standing up. "Now come on, unlike you I don't mind getting people to help me make my job easier. Otherwise what is the point of meeting people at all." He let the words hang in the air, unanswered, while rising from the lobby bench. "Yeah, yeah. I told you I'm not a fool," he retorted while following behind her. The day wrap up rather quickly, things dying down as the day went on. After his task was complete, he escorted his mother home and immediately retired for the evening. Upon entering his room, he spotted a note with a small pouch sitting on it. He picked up note and it read "Mission Complete" and the pouch was heavy with ryo. He'd forgotten to report in that he had completed his mission, but apparently someone had done so for him. Only one individual had the habit of intruding in such a manner. At least this time that annoying messenger didn't linger to exchange witty banter. Tonight, the young Belmont wanted only to get a full nights rest. Wc: 893
  5. He had skipped no more than three stones, each bouncing a bit better than the last. In what seemed like no time this little diversion was turning into a challenge and Bastian was growing more annoyed with each failed attempt. Though his frown was most certainly one of frustration, behind the ever jovial wooden mask he wore made him look amused. He had begun to scratch his wild dark reddish brown afro, after skipping the third rock, when the voice from behind caught him completely off guard. The response was more reflex than anything else, due to his recent run in with the Yard Gang enforcer. The man had been lucky enough to get the drop on Bastian and had even locked in a deep sleeper hold. The man was unlucky that Bastian had been the target, though the damage was nothing that a good few years of physical rehabilitation couldn't fix. The moment that this unknown individual shouted his statement, Bastian tossed one of the rocks just in front of the man's feet. The force alone being to penetrate the ground itself. It wasn't until after he tossed the rock, did the young Belmont realize his mistake. "My apologies, comrade," he would immediately shout back. He scratched his head while grinning before continuing, "Still a bit wired from dealing with some fuckery. You could say I'm still at the ready," he stated jokingly picking up another few rocks. While he spoke, he sized of the individual in front of him. Being that Bastian was always working or out on missions, he'd hadn't had much time to hang around his younger peers. Given that his entire class, aside from himself and two others, were all killed on their very first team mission. He alone lived because of his name and the weight it carried, being the son of a renown wealthy martial artist. He was essentially the last of the 'Genius Generation', who were so smart yet died on the first leg of their journey. 6 years ago and it still plagued his mind whenever he was reminded of that nickname. He hated that the nickname was even given to them in the first place, they were just kids that worked hard. Another story for another day, though. Since then he had become a bit picky about the company he kept, choosing to steer away from none beneficial people. However, for some reason he felt like hanging out. "Bastian Belmont. You can call me Belmont," he stated for the man to plainly here without the need for shouting; his expression rather nonchalant. No sooner did he make his statement did a gentle voice speak out in greeting to the duo. Bastian gray eye's, hidden behind his mask, shifted toward the source and immediately was glad he wore a mask. "Call me, Bast," he said with a slight smirk, "And you who might you be, Lady Kunoichi?" There was just something about blondes, they just always captured the Belmont's attention. "This day just got more interesting," he thought to himself.

  10. He traversed the winding path of the Kami Forest, passing people and animals alike. The animals themselves were harmless, if not sometimes pests; at least for the young Belmont. The people present appeared to be regular civilians, enjoying a nice early afternoon. Despite the time of day, under the canopy of leaves from the trees it appeared much later. The shade offered opportunity for most nocturnal animals to be out and about. Locals often called the forest the a "a place that never sleeps" ae a result. As the young shinobi continued down the the path, wearing an all black jogging suit set and shinobi sandals, he chanced upon the lake that made the forest able to grow in the mountains. He adjusted as his mask as he looked at the dark blue, yet sparkling water. The few cracks of light seeping through the leaves above made it appear as if the stars had taken residence in the lake itself. "What a beauty you are," he thought to himself as looked upon the beauty before him. Glancing down he noticed a few smooth pebbles and promptly picked them up. With smirk on his face, he began to attempt skipping rocks over the lake trying to reach the other side. In truth he was only killing time before he met up with a few friends from the guard patrol for drinks.
  11. Characters Involved | Link to the Missions | Brief Overview | Landslides have become more abundant, the shinobi duo look into why. Also, a lead herbalist was reported missing in the mountains. The duo is also tasked with finding her or her remains. 2 B rank missions. (Other participants have quit the site or gone inactive.)
  12. Bastian fell silent as he witnessed the snakes pass him by, shocked they didnt notice him, his companion, nor Lady Igram. They dug deep and no sooner had they vanished into the dark from wence they came, another landslide occurred. Lucky Bastian was mostly out the way and used his own poncho to keep Igram secure. Without delay Bastian picked up Igram, and began his accent. The effort of focusing and maintaining weight greater than his own, while using the surface walking technique, was taxing but he soon arrived to his destination. From there Lady Igram was escorted to the hospital and the findings on what the landslide was being caused by were reported. Both missions done, Bastian bid his comrade Saisaki farewell. He didn't know her well, but she was one whom he found himself easily able to get along with. He couldn't help but feel this was the last he would see her, so he gave her a humble bow. "Thank you for allowing me to tag along, doc. Until we meet again, my friend." Was his parting words before vanishing into the bustle of the village. [Exit.

  14. Bastian watched, holding in his amusement, as he watched Saisaki attempt to win the birds trust. It reminded him of how one would handle a hostage situation. When the bird was finally procured by the head medic, the two seemed to start trying to confirm a means of communication. "I need to find whoever trained that bird," he said once Saisaki and the hawk came to an understanding. Pretty much at the mercy of a birds direction, whose little head poked just enough from under Saisaki's poncho to have a clear view. Given that he was trailing behind Saisaki, he could hardly hear the red hawk squak over the raging storm above them. Only when the bird started to get a bit frantic did they come to halt. Before he could even be asked, Bastian began to scan the edge of the mountain side. He gazed through the slits of his mask, "If she went over...," he thought as he adjusted his focus to the edge of the mountain itself. He searched for signs of where she may have fallen off. It was then he spotted something that stole his attention. A tree had tipped over, looking to be more from it just being a dead tree than the storm actually causing it to fall. It had fallen just enough that it lay a little less than half way off the edge itself. It had been there a while, Bastian guessed, since it had a bunch of new growth all over it. He quickly moved toward the tree and immediately the red hawk began to go nuts. Hearing this, Bastian thoroughly inspected the tree and found there was a rope tied tightly around part of tree sticking out over the edge. "Hey, Doc," he shouted as he risked his weight on the tree to see what the rope was holding up. Peering down just below him, huddle on a cliff, was Lady Igram who had yet to notice her rescuers. The rope swayed in the wind, much to short to even reach her. "The rope must've snapped while she was climbing," he said thinking outloud, "Easy enough. Stay here, doc." Without so much as a thought wasted, Bastian leaped over the mountain like one would jump off a diving board. Simultaneously the thunder would roar in the skies, as if the man were being greeted by the storm itself. Then, is if pulled by a phantom hand, his body jerked toward the mountain side while he focused the chakra on his feet. He hit the mountainside feet first and then proceeded to skate his way toward his objective. Despite his speedy descent, he landed softly on the landing just in front of Lady Igram. "Hey, everything is okay now, miss." Lady Igram looked up and gave an annoyed expression. "Well, it took you long enough," she blurted out as revealed that she was huddled up only to keep her belongings as dry as possible. "Well, we just recieved the-," Bastian began but was immediately cut off by Lady Igram. "Save it. Just get me out of here. I'm sure Ubba is at his wits end without me," she snapped as she stood up, albeit a bit shaky. "As you say, Lady Igram," Bastian replied, thankful his mask hid the death stare he was giving her. She was light, though she carried much that made the task an annoying one. She refused to leave a single thing, proclaiming them to be vital to the Lightning's medical research. She was a young woman, but had the nagging abilities of an old bat. Bastian could only listen to the sound of the storm to drown her out as he prepared his ascent back to the mountain path.

  15. Still trying to catch his breathe and still regaining his faculties, Bastian didn't resist the help from Saisaki. "This has to be tiring you out," he said once he assumed she was finished. He touched where the gash had been and felt little to no pain. "I really need to learn that trick," he thought to himself before replacing his mask on his face. He gave Saisaki a nod to show he heard her bring up that they needed to get back to land. Before moving he took a final glance toward where he had tossed the bear cub. Both it and it's mother were gone, "Hopefully that overgrown hamster isn't hurt from the toss," he thought as he followed Saisaki's example and made it to safety. "I think I have done enough hiking for the next week," he said jokingly as he sat on the wet ground. After giving his now heal cut over his left brow a few pokes to check for pain, Bastian put his mask back on and promptly gave a big grin at Saisaki. "I think we should go to your original plan and get off this mountain," he stated before looking toward the waterfall, "I'd rather not push my luck to far."
