A human woman who went by the name of Yuri, though she was an Exorcist, had a unique view of demons, believing they entered Assiah because they were curious. She even went as far as to fraternize with Satan, allowing him to possess her body so she could show him life in Assiah. Eventually she became pregnant with Satan's children and the result was two twin boys, one named Yukio and the other Rin. Rin inherited Satan's powers and demonic appearance while Yukio was too fragile to do so and came out looking more like his human mother than his demon father. The two grew up close as brothers though, in reality, they couldn't be anymore different. Yukio became an Exorcist at a young age and Rin dropped out of school after junior high with only limited knowledge of Exorcists and their workings.
The two lived in a monastery with a man by the name of Shiro Fujimoto who acted as their biological father. Shiro sealed Rin's powers at birth within an ancient sword known as the Kurikara, a demon slaying sword, with the help of a certain someone, thus allowing Rin to live as a human.
However, this only lasted 15 years, when a fateful incident involving Father Fujimoto occurred. A number of demons headed by one named Astaroth came for Rin but Shiro arrived just in time to exorcise the demon and to get Rin back to the monastery and safety. However, Astaroth was determined and returned, once again possessing the body of a young boy by the name of Shiratori before pursuing Rin once more.
Back at the monastery, Rin was given the demon-slaying sword, Kurikara, and told that he was the son of Satan, that his satanic powers were sealed inside and that if he drew it, he could never return to being human. Shiro then locked Rin in the room where he had given him the sword and a phone with a single number in the contact list just as the demons arrived only to have Rin break out when the fight was nearly over.
The fight ended shortly after and that's when the father told him to call the only phone number in the contacts list again of the phone he had given him earlier. Hurt and confused, Rin believed Shiro was tired of acting as his father and only wanted to get rid of him. Rin snapped and told Shiro he should stop pretending to be his father, which resulted in Shiro slapping Rin hard across the face.
Rin's words hurt Shiro's heart and broke down his will, thus resulting in his being possessed by Satan, who opened the Gehenna Gate and tried to drag Rin through it. However, Shiro regained control of his body briefly with a burst of willpower long enough to take his own life, thus causing Satan to lose control of his body. Yet both Rin and Shiro's body were being drug into the gate with Rin unable to break free of it. Despite the consequences he had been warned about, Rin drew Kurikara, thus releasing his demon side and his powers, which he used to destroy the gate though it was too late as Shiro was already dead.
Rin decided to become an Exorcist to destroy Satan and was accepted into True Cross Academy with the help of Mephisto Pheles. He trained alongside his classmates with the warning ingrained in his head to avoid using Satan's power too much or it may cause unforeseen disasters.
Rin tried his hardest to listen to this advice but things did not work out the way he planned; circumstances kept arising where he was forced to use the powers, whether it was to save someone he cared about or someone else was forcing him to use them. Later on in his training as an Exwire and as Rin kept using the powers, he began to change. His demon features became more prominent, almost impossible not to notice, and he seemed to become angrier and even power hungry.
Finally, one day came when Rin was alone, Yukio being off on his own business, Satan called out to him. Far gone and twisted by now, Rin listened to his father's offer of power which could only come by opening the Gate of Gehenna and allowing it to take over Assiah. Rin allowed Satan to possess his body and immediately they went to work on summoning the Gehenna Gate. Many came to try and slay Rin but he fought back violently, his powers enhanced by Satan's presence in his body. The gate stayed open even as he fought, demons straying out of it by the hundreds, wreaking havoc on Assiah as Gehenna fought to overcome the pure world.
Eventually Assiah could no longer resist and succumbed to Gehenna, much to Satan's glee. He watched in twisted satisfaction as humans began to morph into the various creatures of Gehenna, some receiving subtle changes and others receiving much more drastic ones. He laughed hysterically in triumph though his laugh was cut short by an inhuman roar tearing from the body he currently inhabited. With his tail lashing in anger and intense blue flames surrounding his body, Rin snarled at his father.
"This is my world, you bastard! Get out of my body NOW!"
The flames grew even more intense and the air was filled with an ear-piercing wail that sounded utterly inhuman and terrifying. The wail kept up for several long moments, growing more pained with each passing second until it abruptly stopped.
Rin stood still for several moments before glancing out at his morphed subjects, a sadistic grin spreading across his features, revealing his full mouth of pointed teeth.
"Welcome to Gehenna, your new home."
Do you enjoy being a newly born demon or do you hate Gehenna with all your heart and want to go back to being human? There are rumors spreading that there is a group that wants to bring back Assiah as well, ones that Rin himself has even heard, though nothing is known about this group, such as who is in it or if it even exists. Will you seek out the rebel group, will you take things into your own hands or are you content to sit and enjoy your new life?
Pretty standard stuff, respect each other, follow the site rules, things like that. Canons from the show and made ups are accepted. Your made ups can be any of the races, even reborn demons, since obviously the characters of the show aren't the only humans to exist in Assiah. Made ups as well as canons can be teachers Rin hired to work in True Cross Academy though they'll most likely be demons, since they have special favor with Rin. They can also be bodyguards for Rin or double agents for or against Rin, if you so desire. Be creative, the artistic license is yours, just please follow the basic guidelines for whatever species you choose. =3
Here's the link to the OOC where you can post your character bios if you're new or get all the information pertaining to the different races.
The setting is going to be the world of Gehenna though we're going to have to take some liberties with it since it wasn't shown in the anime. Since it's overtaken Assiah, I intend for some of Assiah's original structures to remain, such as the monastery where Rin and Yukio lived and True Cross Academy though it will have an addition where Rin lives, isolated from all those who want to kill him.
