The last remaining member of the Arisu family, Reiji is the latest in a long line of powerful exorcists dedicated to the safety of mankind. Working under the banner of the Shinra Organization, Reiji has spent the last ten years of his relatively short life defending the streets of Tokyo from supernatural threats of all kinds with sword, gun, and his skill as an Onmyoji. He wields his many tools in a complex, fluid fighting style that allows a spiritually mighty but otherwise ordinary man to engage foes who should be far outside of his weight class. Though he comes off as a bit sardonic and humorless at times, Reiji's cool exterior belies his hotheaded tendencies and compassionate heart, both of which occasionally have him rush into situations far larger than he can handle on his own. Fortunately, he's rarely alone; after all, Reiji only fights at his absolute best while alongside his partner, Xiaomu. Recent events have thrown his world into chaos -- the dimensional walls have begun to weaken and tear, drawing in all manner of unusual and bizarre monsters, as well as throwing open the gates to the Multiverse at large. Now, Reiji struggles to discover the source of this dimensional upheaval, putting him on a course that will see him encounter faces both old and new, and may lead him to a confrontation that will finally end a decade-old vendetta.








Xiaomu: Xiaomu has been with Reiji for years. She's been tremendous pillar of support for him since his father's death and, despite their occasional disagreements, she is very important to him. Though he knows that she can defend herself just fine on her own and, in most cases, he doesn't need to worry too much about her, he will go to extremes to safeguard her life if the situation demands it. At the same time, it's spectacularly easy to manipulate Reiji if she is used as leverage against him. However, should anyone harm her -- or threaten her life without a way to properly back up their claims -- he will go out of his way to make them regret it.

Vendetta: Ten years ago, the were-fox, Saya killed Shougo Arisu and critically wounded his son. Years before that, she murdered his mother. Today, Reiji Arisu harbors a tremendous grudge, not only against that woman in particular, but against the entire Ouma Project, which she represents, and any who might associate with them. Reiji will stop at nothing to end their ambitions, even if it means putting himself at great personal risk.

Compassionate Heart: Despite his many grievances, Reiji is still a deeply compassionate man. He will always prioritize the safety of civilians over nearly anything else, and frequently goes out of his way to ensure collateral damage is kept to an absolute minimum, and is prone to unnecessarily throwing himself into danger to protect innocent lives. Enemies who know of this tend to exploit it ruthlessly, and so Reiji endeavors to conceal it behind a mask of professionalism. Unfortunately, it generally doesn't take long to notice that he's intentionally taking steps to protect the public, so most discerning evil-doers will be able to pick up on his soft heart relatively quickly.

Cosmic Straightman: Xiaomu is a Mystic Fox who definitely acts neither her species nor her age. Dealing with her antics for much of his life has left Reiji somewhat impervious to most forms of comedy, and what mirth he does exhibit tends to be laced with a heaping helping of dry wit and sarcasm. Some people might take it the wrong way, but really it's mostly just habit by this point; Reiji really is a good deal more optimistic and friendly than his particular brand of humor might suggest. Unfortunately, any attempt to break out of his role tends to come off as kind of forced, or else the universe will conspire against him to maintain what it seems to have come to expect.

Father's Shadow: Reiji still hasn't quite gotten over his father's death, and often feels as though he's walking in Shougo's shadow -- but he certainly won't tolerate anyone speaking ill of the man. Mentioning his father's death in any disrespectful terms is a quick way to trigger Reiji's temper, and insulting the man is a great way to start a fight. Clever foes can take advantage of this. Less intelligent ones can push him too far -- which never ends well for anyone involved. Moreover, situations that remind him of the circumstances of his trauma can easily set him off, either out of desperation or anger, and can cause him to act more impulsively and recklessly than he normally would.

Tasty Blood: Monsters of all stripes love the taste of Arisu Blood. Just like any spiritually powerful mortal, Reiji smells particularly delectable to demons, youkai and spirits who might seek to devour his flesh to increase their own power. Reiji's heritage makes him something of a magnet for ghosts and goblins and other similar critters in general, and, though he's usually equipped and able to handle all comers, he might one day attract a threat he can't simply fight away on his own. This also means he's relatively easy to follow with magic unless hes actively covering his tracks, and enables most spiritually aware creatures, divinities and individuals to easily detect the potency of his bloodline.

Hold the Line January 22nd, 2017 It's been a week since Nintendo held its big online (and RL) press conference with release details about their next game console, the Nintendo Switch. Now stores in Japan are finally taking preorders, and dedicated otaku have lined up overnight to ensure their places in line to place their preorders.

Tokyo-52605 being what it is, though, an overnight gathering of otaku is unlikely to go unmolested, no matter how many of them can (or more importantly, can't) protect themselves. Good thing a certain sage fox will be around to call for backup, right?

.... what, you thought Xiaomu's going to give up her place in line? Not that easily - although she will if she has to ... and then there'll be hell to pay for whatever forced the issue upon her.

Mission 5: Bargaining Chip November 21st, 2016 Ouma's plot to reassemble the Killing Stone and unleash its power has been thwarted, and three of the four fragments are now in Shinra's safekeeping. But Ouma's erstwhile allies in the Confederacy stole away the fourth fragment - and as long as it's out there, any attempts Shinra makes to exorcise the ancient curse and purify the fragments are subject to fail. They need the fourth piece ...

But the Confederates have their own plans to enact before they're ready to give back what they see as a potentially useful weapon.

Mission 4: The Hour When Demons Pursue November 5th, 2016 The struggle for the pieces of the Sessho-Seki, the legendary Killing Stone, has reached its climax. Three of the pieces have been found; the fourth is somewhere in Tokyo.

And so is Ouma's target for the Killing Stone's use.

Shinra needs all four pieces in order to neutralize Tamamo-no-Mae's ancient and deadly curse; Ouma just needs to bring them all together outside Shinra's control.

What forces will be unleashed in the streets of Tokyo, and who will carry the day?

Mission 3: Calamity of Land and Sea October 29th, 2016 The 1707 Houei earthquake was the most powerful quake recorded in Japanese history; seismologists refer to it as a 'megathrust' earthquake, with multiple sections of an undersea faultline erupting almost simultaneously. Between the earthquake itself and the ensuing tsunami, it affected most of the main islands of Japan, and is additionally suspected of triggering the last known eruption of Mt. Fuji.

But the legendary youkai Nurarihyon doesn't really care about ancient history. He's taken over a fairly luxurious estate in Wakayama, and a bunch of Ouma's members have been spotted in the area as well. They're looking for something, not just on land but underwater ... specifically, another fragment of the Killing Stone.

Of course Shinra is going to get involved - if only because Nurarihyon is a jerk who takes over people's houses, but they can't let Ouma get another piece of the Killing Stone, either. And naturally, both sides will likely want whatever help they can get from the Confederacy and the Union, respectively ...

Contract of the Gods' Forge - Crystal October 16th, 2016 The darkest depths of Seath's basement are explored. The living failures are found, as is the shiny shiny.
Mission 2: The Forest of Death October 15th, 2016 Aokigahara, a dense forest at the foot of Mt. Fuji's northwest slopes, is either famous or infamous for the number of suicides which are carried out there. Some people go so far as to say that the forest is haunted by the spirits of those who die there - whether by taking their own lives, or as a result of murder.

And not all of the killers roaming Aokigahara are ghostly, or even of human origin. Ouma is scouring the Forest of Death for the second fragment of the Killing Stone, and they're calling in assistance from the Confederacy to boot; Shinra's agents can't deal with the combination alone, so they've requested Union support.

Who will find the second piece of the Killing Stone ... and who will fall in the search for it?

Mission 1: The Nine Tails' Curse October 8th, 2016 The Nasu region of Tochigi Prefecture is primarily known for two things. For most people, it's renowned for its natural sulfur hot springs, and that's what brings Reiji, Xiaomu, and some of their Union friends to the region - a hot-springs trip that's been long in the planning, and forestalled by many of the crises they've had to help deal with.

But Nasu is also where Tamamo-no-Mae was finally hunted down and killed ... and when her body became the Sessho-Seki, the Killing Stone, her curse lingered for many years, as the stone took the lives of those mortals who touched it. Eventually the Stone was destroyed and the curse lifted - but Ouma has discovered that there's still a piece of it there: the first piece they need if they're going to resurrect that ancient and deadly curse.

Contract of the God's Forge September 25th, 2016 Andre and the Giant Smith meet. The hunt for weapon upgrades begins.
The Way of the Everlasting Dragon September 14th, 2016 The mendicant warrior-ascetics of the cult of the Everlasting Dragons show up on Anor Londo's doorstep. A disaster is narrowly averted when a dragon-ish idol shows up to demand a stage performance instead.
