NIGHTjUNK: the 2nd Generation
By 1954, the world fell into catastrophe as WWII initiates chemical warfare. But reluctantly, such warfare spawned upon countless monsters. The whole world shambles into fear. Now faced by a more sinister threat, nations worldwide had united one another, forming the U.N. and the Earth Defense Force (or EDF for short).
The iconic monster, Godzilla, was EDFs first foe. After countless suffering, the dreaded god felt the icy realms of death under the hands of one scientist, Dr. Serizawa, as he unleashed the dreaded Oxygen destroyer, leaving his infamous remark on atomic and chemical testing. Ever since then usage of such weapons are banned by the UN.
Through out history, the world had seen countless monsters battle with the agents of EDF. The widespread of these agents are formed in each country as groups. By 2008, the menace returns.
Another Godzilla appeared and began destroying Tokyo, unprepared, JSDF was nearly defenseless. But out of hopes reach, a small band of civilians had taken matters on their own hands.
This small group, made up of non-humans, supernatural beings and mutants, single-handedly defeated this demon. At first, their assistance became both a wonder, a threat; bringing confusion to the public as what or who they were, but when another menace came, the space harbinger of death, King Ghidorah, they had no choice but to protect the same people who neglected them.
Two kills in one stone; the dragon and the peoples distrust in them. For that they earned the title, Rouge Team; first EDF team to be made up of civilians and of non-humans.
By 2014, the group expands. Gaining new members, yet losing a few; the purpose of this team had not yet been lost. This is NIGHTjUNK, human service beyond all rules
Members/ team mates/ others: (from left to right. Top to bottom*)
~ Pip- small pan dimensional being. Useless enough to be a pet.
~ Das (BG) A Zilla who is first of his kind to befriend humans. Being the only surviving son of the original Zilla, Das was rarely accepted in society, but after a few contributions he did protecting humans from other monsters, he was fully recognized as the first monster to be accepted directly
~ Akane Yashiro JSDF agent and mech Pilot. Pilots Kiryu, EDFs first mech. She is a hot-head who easily freaks out when emplaced on a group made up of non-humans. In this case, NIGHTjUNK, making her only a visiting member.
~ Sarah Shoemaker- vampire mutant and gunslinger. Can absorb energy as well as a part of her targets power to be used as he own. Bears a grudge to an unknown vampiric creature and decided to join the group after finding a place in it.
~Lee Xing - EDF agent and mutant. Possess superhuman strength and feats. One of the few members of the JSDF who only visits the group.
~Godzilla (BG)- 2nd Godzilla in the world. A rouge monster infamous for his power, yet trusted by the team for his possibilities. Doesnt directly help the team; Godzilla fights his own battles as the group help him from the back.
~ Nonaka Aiwa (AKA. Namiko )- junior member. A tomboyish swords girl and a combat mage. Later changed her name to Namiko after her team mates kept calling her Mini-Yamiko (similar resemblance*)
Namiko suffers from a developing lesbian attraction, which she, in vain, hides from everyone else. (though, every one else is aware of this). She is protective over a girl she likes, Sasori.
~Sasori- junior member and newbie. A sweet cheerful wealthy girl who yearns more in life. She sees the group as an opportunity and quickly applied as a member. She is aware that Namikos love interest and although it wasnt clear if she accepts this or not, she does respect Namikos love for her and keeps her suspicion to herself.
As a member, she is trained by Yamiko as a medic mage.
~Feral (brown thing below Pip) Savages spell-made brother and Yamikos personal Shade Beast.
~ Taiko Kaede- hacker and tech-wiz of the group. Known for her incredible hacking skills, she is also known for her ability to create her own programs and acts as the teams information officer.
A complete closet Otaku spends most of her time, both in combat and in leisure, typing in information for the team to know. She did proved herself useful by showing her hacking abilities can even hack into mech systems and controlling them from her own laptop.
~ Toshiro Umezawa- Otsunes husband and the groups Ninja Lycan. One of the teams brawns and skilled on Ninjutsu techniques. He is protective of his wife, but understands enough to let her fight her own battles. Yet he does shows a bit of a fuss when Otsune got injured.
~ Maki- Otsune and Toshis adopted son. A wolf-fox spirit taking the shape of a young boy. Had the power to transform into a larger and older predator but only done once. Whether he can again is unknown
~ Savage (resting on top of Maki) Toshi and Daves shade beast. Somewhat one of the teams strongest member and can transform to a human form. Had pyro-manipulative skills.
Lately, he is developing a sense of guilt (either that or he is trying to impress Ilza) and even made a list of things he did that annoyed the others.
~Yori Wakaba- Blonde Japanese junior member and the teams child prodigy when it comes to inventing. Had invented some of the teams weapons against monsters.
~ Coffee-boy (resting on top of Yori*) anthropomorphized coffee mug. Does nothing but dance.
~Otsune K. Umezawa- Teams priestess and Kitsune. Known popularly for her big bust and somewhat laid-back attitude. Skilled in using bladed tonfas in close combat and spell talismans.
~ Apple Ne- teams android gal and a living computer. Developed by the Government yet neglected as type-01, a codename given to a droid when her functions are outdated. She proved this wrong by upgrading herself into a living armada.
~ Celia Sonno- a type-R zombie psychic Italian girl (type-R are zombies that are reanimated. Meaning they are immortal humans, smart and doesnt crave for human flesh). First zombie to possess psychic abilities such as telepathy and telekinesis.
~ Ilza Hazkaphet A foreigner from a country destroyed during WWII known as Krocacia. A mutant with an ability to control surrounding temperature and creature snow nearly anywhere and anytime. A friendly woman who is older than how she looks.
~ Jennifer Wakeman- a mutant girl who is nicknamed The Living Metal for her ability to transform into either liquid or hardened metal. A result from an experimental chemical test during 1954, in which super-humans are a plot. Due to this, she is immortal and can transform any part of her body into any weapon.
She has crush on Dave and has a phobia on kaijus, so every time she gets in battle, she has the urge to kill the beast immediately (only soothes down by Dave or other members that are close to her*)
~Sada-chan (Sadako Yamamura)- a ghost turned mortal, Sada-chan possesses little psychic abilities and is extremely shy.
Unknown to them is Why exactly did she accepted the job as their maid, but she does claim to respect them enough for letting her in and is trying to repay their kindness. Later became Daves girlfriend.
~Dave/David- EDF agent and senior pilot (meaning he is nearly privileged to pilot almost any mech or vehicle*). Paul L.s best friend and trusted man. Appears to know a few supernatural things and had his own third eye opened after an exposure to a divine energy. He is the only new member who hadnt explain how exactly he got into the team.
~ Yamiko Kobayashi (and her wood sprite) - mistress of spells, Paul L.s wife and second in command. She describes herself as a wonder in the bed and Japans high spell caster (although she is aware that there are a few out there.)
Because of her position, she is sometimes lazy and bossy around the house, but when in combat, she really looks after each and every member, specially the younger ones and even scolds the others for not keeping and eye on them.
Because of her short figure, she is mostly mistaken as a teenager when she is actually 20 years old
~ Paul L. (AKA L.P.) The teams leader, founder and a very strong psychic. A very optimistic man who deeply cares for everyone on his team. Like his wife, he has a short stature and easily mistaken for a boy when he is really 22 years old.
Despite his uniquely powerful psychic abilities, according to a few members, he hadnt really brought out his full potential. Paul is aware of this and in a way, frightened of this.
He also had befriended Death (literally him) who looks after his powers and makes sure it wouldnt go haywire. To him, the boys powers are a dangerous tool, with the ability to open even the gates of heaven or hell or even beyond it. (Chaosium, the realm of never ending disorder)
The L in his name is yet to be known.
~Joshua Victor- the groups physically strongest member and the first Lycan to join. He is Apples boyfriend and Celias adoptive brother. He himself claims of his short comings and even how much mistake he can to in one day.
Not usually bright, he is still one of the teams effective members.
~Teeth- a joke teeth. Owned by L.P. claims to be alive.
~Jake Tezuka- a newbie American-Japanese member of the EDF who is skilled in martial arts and in fixing machines. He is Akanes love interest, whose feelings are well respected by him. Like Paul L. he is optimistic and laid-back.
~ Eru L (and creature)- A gender-mismatched clone of Paul L Yamiko made by accident. She possesses nearly all of Paul Ls powers and seems to be developing on her own way. At first, Paul and herself considered her own as a clone only but soon treated one another as siblings.
What is funny about Eru is that she ponders on how she had big breasts. Paul just swats away the idea claiming big boobs are placed on girls who cares less about it. She owns a small chibi girl who she calls simply as creature. Creature sees Eru as her mother and has the ability to create a sort of hallucinogen through her saliva.
~Kazim Rahja- coming from the same country of Ilzas, Kazim is a vengeful foreign mutant who despises Japan for what they had done to his country. He arrives, first, as a villain in disguise, destroying a part of Tokyo using his powers, but was soon sooth down by Eru who managed to convince him to stop. Having nowhere to go, he, in vain, decided to team up with the same people who try to beat him.
A mutant, he has the ability to generate electricity to the extent of summoning lightning storms and even manipulates natural lightning. Later, he actually developed feelings over Eru.
~Tick (floating above Kazims shoulder)- The teams main mascot and a loud bad-mouthed, inter-dimensional, alien, wind-up toy creature. Tick possess numerous powers, (such as having a miniature black hole for a stomach and can multiply from pieces), but the rest are pure useless. He claims to be an invader, but the team sees no threat in him.
~Tenebrea- a young shade-beast who has either bisexual tendencies or gay attraction to L.P. which he lost soon as the story progress. He is a sly boy who enjoys making pranks. Celia is fond of him, playing with him at times to the point that he even developed a bit of crush on the zombie girl.
He can manipulate shadows and create passages through it.
~Dorat- mutated specie of mammal. Yori kept one in hopes of studying it. It ended up being her pet and may have a potential to turn into a stronger creature.
