----- Intro to the setting
Time is a precious thing. It is limited, and can not be regained once it is lost. While the past may repeat itself, nothing will ever truly be the same- only similar. Hence why the world is ruled by time. Everyone spends their life trying to make the most of their time or trying to find a way to preserve it-or themselves. Many long for the elusive immortality, but none have succeeded....or so we thought.
Immortals do live among us, in human forms. They live as vampires- powerful, immortal creatures who feast on the blood of the living. All these years they kept to the shadows, hiding in our midst without us ever knowing. It was only in the last decade that they've revealed themselves. Over the years humanity has obsessed over and romanticized vampires- and a few finally decided to behave in such a way. This led to more and more of them revealing themselves, and eventually to the integration of their species into our society. Their population is smaller than ours, but their abilities make them far superior. Yet the mice live among the snakes as if there was nothing to fear.....for the most part. As when every predator lives beside its prey, incidents are bound to occur- and they do. frequently. But there's no going back to how things were before, not anymore. There's merely precautions that can be taken. Keep doors and windows locked. Avoid being outside at night. So on a so forth. None the less, with the fact that immortality is now obtainable, there are some who hunt for it. Then there are those who frequent the clubs. These 'clubs; are much like those gone to for dancing- only there's more danger involved. These specific clubs were made for vampires to find those who are willing to be fed upon.Others are addicted to the danger much like some people are to adrenaline, or just acting out. A very few are simply curious as to what vampires are truly like. After all, most people don't see the true natures of vampires. It's illegal for them to drink blood publicly, even from a bottle. Even more so, it's strictly forbidden for a vampire to feed from the source. It helps to prevent the creation of new vampires, according to the authorities. Not like that really stops them- they can't really be controlled, after all. Since when has the wolf ever listened to the sheep? They're merely coexisting to make their lives easier- they could easily overthrow us if they truly wanted to. Anyways, these forbidden actions is why these clubs are so hard to find- because they're illegal. If they are discovered, they're shut down immediately, but it doesn't take long for a new one to pop right up.
Despite all this, time moves ever forward. Some People try to live life as normally as they can. A few try to return things to how they used to be. Some try for immortality. Others want the danger. None the less, the streets aren't safe. The world is changing by the day. The reign of humanity is spiraling towards the end. The only questions that remain are, what will you do with the time you have left, and what will the future bring?

Character species; human
Character name;Akemi Shiko
Positive traits;agile, giving, and intelligent.
Negative traits;overlycautious, and a slight pushover.
Personality; Despite her frail appearance, she is rather agile, and she's rather intelligent. Well, to some extent anyways. She's better at observing things and solving puzzles of sort rather then an all-around intelligence. However, she's overly cautious, and has trouble speaking her mind and opinions.
[i] Life is a fleeting thing- it begins one moment, and is ending in the next. One's whole existence goes by in a flash. One night, however, everything changed. When she was three, the vampires were integrated into every day society. They were everywhere on TV- from lifestyle shows to reality TV, and attacks all over the news. She, however, had never seen a vampire. While the majority of places had their fair share of vampires, there were a few places that remained vamp-free for whatever reason. Mainly it was sunnier, hotter places like Florida and Texas, but there were other places as well. Her and her group's home town had happened to be one of those places. However, for summer break, they all decided to travel far from home to a big city, filled to the brim with vampires and humans alike. Personally, she just wanted to see one in person, to see if they really had the scarlet red eyes that television portrayed. None the less, she was a little scared. After all, they say curiosity killed the cat.

It was many years ago that he was turned into a vampire. He had been out for a night on the town with the guys, all trying to impress the ladies of town. When the group split for the night, however, he heard a scream pierce through the silence, and quickly ran after it. Upon reaching the source, he saw the body of a woman, lying listless on the ground. Above her was a man he appeared to be around his age, blood coating his face and clothing. Next thing he knew, the man lunged at him. He awoke around twelve hours later back at his home, thinking everything had just been a dream. When he looked in the mirror, all hopes of it having been a dream were gone. His pupils were cat-like, and he sported a set of fangs where is upper canines should have been. It was about a day after that when he consumed human blood, and an hour after that when he died. He wasn't sure how long it took for him to wake back up, but when he did, the man from the night everything happened was there. That man became his mentor, teaching him how to adapt into this new life. Once he was able to take care of himself, they parted ways. Now he lives in the city, spending most of his time solvings puzzles or at the local clubs. Though the change he went through years ago affected more than just his apetite- it affected his personality too. He used to be rather sweet, quite the charmer with a hint of naivety and shyness. Then he was turned, and his personality changed to being bolder, more confident, and a heck of a lot more flirtatious and mischievous. Sometimes during the daylight hours, his old personality can show through, but at night it's almost completely the new personality.
