(OLD) Long ago an ancient demon known as Yami no Bakura reigned over the souls known as mortals. His control lasted until the Great War of the Ancients took his first life. since this was his only option, he cast himself into a newborn child. The child conceived was named Kurai Ko, The Dark Child.
Many years past, as the boy slowly developed lycan mannerisms, later becoming a vampire as well, the first of his kind. After the death of his guardians he was adopted into the family known as Odjin. From this moment on, Kurai developed many powers, much like his new father, Overlord Kurashi Odjin, who was already a master of these powers.
Kurai developed many strange and powerful skills that allowed him to be a force unlike any other. Kurai later became the vessel for many forms, most prominently his Fire form, Rin, his Ice form, Yukki, his vampire form, Stallion, and his reaper form, whom he named Yami, after his late father. These forms all have their own persona, and have completely devoured his former self, the innocent "Human".
Kurai has ascended to the title Demi-god, as he can choose to kill a form's prominence in exchange of his own life. The most note worthy forms being Demon, Werewolf, Earth, and Water.(OLD)
(NEW)Long before the great war a child was born to darkness. concealed in the ancient territory (Azrath) known only to the gods themselves, the child who would be known as pure darkness was conceived. This was no ordinary child however, he was a spawn that no power of the time could handle. The child was kept away from the world, in hopes to keep him from realizing his true purpose to the gods, a war machine.
After he had grown, the child was given the name, Kurai Ko, the dark child. He choose this name due to his inclination to be in the dark, and seemed to be best skilled in the dark arts. About a year after he had been given the name, he was released from the confines of his prison like realm by a figure unknown to him. He always saw the figure as a person similar to him in age, yet vastly different in personality. After he had escaped, he felt his soul split, a defense of the ancients, if a being who was in the realm tried to leave without an elder’s approval, they would be forced to live their lives with a broken soul. Kurai however was different than the rest of the beings in this plane of existence. After the split, kurai noticed that the dark figure had gained a physical form, this being would be known as Barkura Yami, the stealer of souls.
Bakura and Kurai did not enter the human world knowingly, or even remotely in the same area. Kurai had been found by a elderly couple, who tended to his wounds and helped him restore his strength. Bakura however was not so lucky. Kurai later left the elderly couple without a word, as he was walking away, he could hear the screams of the two, he knew this would be his fate, death would follow wherever he goes. He continued to wander the world, with no clear goal in mind. In fact, he actually resented leaving the realm that had kept him a prisoner for all that time.
about 4 years later, Kurai encountered a being who claimed himself an overlord, the man offered him a choice of joining his clan, or continuing to live on his own. Kurai found no real reason to deny the offer, and joined the clan, claiming the name Odjin. This “family” he had been adopted into introduced his first love in this world, which later lead to a closer feeling for him. He was finally starting to gain his emotions. This would all change however, when he started to gain his powers fully.
About 2 years into being a part of the family, Kurai started to grow his powers. While it started off as a few simple ones such as fire and water, they quickly started overpowering him. He lost himself in these forms as they all fought for the control of their vessel. After a battle that almost killed him, he learned of a skill that would allow him to regain his reign over the forms. Kurai later went into hiding and seclusion, in order to keep himself from harming those he cared for.
Kurai has since returned to the world of the living to take part in the families change in power, however he hold a secret about his regenerations. Kurai is dying, without a complete soul to control the body he is in, he is slowly becoming a ghost of himself. Any influence that proves strong enough to claim control can now remove kurai from power. The being known as Kazuraki is currently in control of him after Kurai went into purgatory in order to see his mother and father once again. Kurai can only regain control by being united with his other half, however this will bring a new challenge to the family, as Kurai will become the WarMachine he was intended to be. Bakurai was sealed away for a reason, and bringing the two souls together could result in world shattering events. The family has decided to try to save Kurai, accepting the risk of dealing with a greater threat later on.
Kurai is struggling to hold on. His only hope of sanity is his new pup, Zanda, and his new recruit Rayn. No one knows how this will end. Will Kurai survive these ordeals, or will he perish like the others of his kind had before him. Only time will tell.(NEW)
